Global IP Settings

IP settings is the repository where TeemIp's default options for all what IP Management is concerned are defined. These are managed through the “Global IP Settings” menu of the Data Administration module.

One set of options, ie one IP Settings object, is defined per Organization. IP Settings object for an organization is automatically created with default values when the first IP object is created within that organization.
