Subject: IP Ban Manager, specify allowed IP address range.
How can I use the extension "IP Ban Manager" https://www.dokuwiki.org/plugin:ipban to specify which IP ranges should be used to answer the Dokuwiki requests ?

Example for IPs or IP address ranges that make sense for a local or LAN installation:
127.0.0.1
or 192.168.*
or 172.*
or 127.0.0.1 and 192.168.* and 172.*

You can't. The plugin is for *banning* ranges not for *allowing*.

Since you seem to want to allow local IP addresses only, I wonder why your wiki is even reachable from anywhere else.
Read this if you don't get any useful answers.

In specific cases, the wiki is used by different groups of children. Who use this in places of their lifestyle. These can be configured meaningfully.

It can therefore do no harm to configure it in such a way that any uninvited external guests, despite existing deliberate or unintentional misconfigurations, do not make the children's data freely available on the Internet or in local networks.

Locking out public networks would represent a certain intrinsic safety of the wikis that are portable in the specific case on local computers or in LANs.

Its looks like for access by localhost no need IP range can banned by:
  • IPv6 ::0 and ::2/0 , that shold bann all IPv6 IPs than the IPv6 localhost IP ::1
  • How to ban the full range of no need IPv4 IPs than 127.0.0.1 are not clear on this time
