The site I’m using s2member on has a number of historical databases which are accessible by paid members of the site. We have interest from libraries and other institutions in offering access to our databases through computers on their premises.
What’s the best way to set up an account for a specific institution that can be accessed by let’s say 5 computers at once, and only from specific computers on the institution’s premises? Ideally it would be one account for everything, but I would create 5 (for example) if necessary. The main problem is how to prevent the institution’s accounts from being used outside their premises. Theoretically we could restrict it to an IP range I guess, but are there other options? Is this something s2member can do, or do I need other software?
