Monitor / Allow port traffic for filtered IP List only

nikpreek
Hi Gurus,

May be simple one for you; but I kind of unable to get my head around it.
I have an FTP repository on my server (in UK), which I have exposed to outside world by exposing a port (changed the default one) through my firewall. This is for my office in India for developers to share data. But the issue is, this can be connected from anywhere if you know username & password. I want to configure my Firewall so that only the calls from the set IP are accepted on this port. I have many ports open, which I want to be open for any IP, so want this port to be configured only for 2-3 specific IP. Is this possible? If not is there any utility tool (software) available to do so?
Pls advice.

Thanks for helping out.

Regards,
Nik

Just me again... There is already an option in Windows firewall. Just add the IP which you want to have access.
In Widows Firewall - Exceptions Tab - [Select the port to configure] - Click on Edit - Click on Change Scope - Select Custom List - Add the list of IP as you want ... all set.
Hope this helps someone...
