ArcGIS 10.2 Restrict Map Service to specific IP Addresses

Question asked by SamuelHenderson on Jul 24, 2014

I've been asked if it is possible to restrict access to certain map services so that only a few whitelisted IP addresses are allowed to connect.  What is the easiest and most straightforward way of accomplishing this? 


I was thinking about putting an .httaccess file in the service directory and allowing and blocking IPs with that, but I'm not sure what the actual service directory is located.  (So as example I want to block http://devmymapservices.mydomain.local/dev/rest/my_map_service/MapServer?f=jsapi so that is only accessible by my IP address) how would I do that?
