An IP is a unique numeric identifier for a device connecting to a network. In Atlas, you can only connect to a cluster from a trusted IP address. Within Atlas, you can create a list of trusted IP addresses, referred to as a IP access list, that can be used to connect to your cluster and access your data.

Procedure

You must add your IP address to the IP access list before you can connect to your cluster. To add your IP address to the IP access list:

1

Open the Connect dialog.

From your Clusters view, click the Connect button for your cluster.
