Using the latest dev version and having a roadblock where I want to limit a folder such that only a specific IP can view it/access it
But unable to find anything like this in the docs or on the forum

I think it may be possible via a script for that folder? Looking for some guidance on the same

Right click on your folder, select "Properties...", then go to "Diff template" tab, put in these:
Code: [Select]
[^]
{.if|{.!=|%ip%|192.168.2.149.}|
{:{.disconnect.}:}
.}
(replace the ip to yours)

Push OK then it works ;)
Check out my template ;)

Not working. REEEEEEE

I want that the file can be only accessed by a specific IP I want.

like a folder's file can be accessed through 1.1.1.1 nor can access the file.

if only one particular ip should be able to access the folder, add something similar in the diff template of the folder properties

either by using a forced disconnection
Code: [Select]
[+]
{.if|{.=|%ip%|127.0.0.1.}|{:{.disconnect.}:}.}

or even better by using a redirect which gives the user the impression of an invalid link

Code: [Select]
[+]
{.if|{.=|%ip%|127.0.0.1.}|{:{.redirect|../ .}:}.}


replace 127.0.0.1 by the allowed ip


a more concrete example is to only give access to a specific user without going through permissions

Code: [Select]
[+]
{.if|{.!=|%user%|Tsuna.}|{:{.redirect|../ .}:}.}


note the difference in use between  {.!=|    and  {.=|  , difference or equal usage

...the file can be only accessed by a specific IP...
At HFS console, press alt+f6 to edit events file, and add this:
Code: [Select]
[download]
{.if|{.match|myparticularfile.doc|%url%.}|{:{.if|{.!=|%ip%|127.0.0.1.}|{:{.disconnect.}:}.}:}.}
replace  myparticularfile.doc  with target file name (to block for most)
replace  127.0.0.1  with target IP address (to allow for one)

P.S. Other options instead of  myparticularfile.doc may be /folder* or *.doc and you can even add to the list, such as myparticularfile.doc;myotherfile.txt;*.pdf with semicolon in-between. 

P.P.S. If this method seems clunky, then you could use the more normal and flexible users/groups/passwords, located in hfs menu > other options > user accounts.  And, then you can right-click on a particular folder/file to set it private to your users/groups.
