Do you mean by anonymous user - role Anonymous, ie no roles?
So when IP address is "inside" then user gets Anonyomus role otherwise =
user must have role?=20

Idea is good but then I must give access for Anonymous which means =
everybody has access. Which means no IP blocking is done and I'm back =
where I started from... :(

So I thought make two users - "insider" and "outsider" and give "Guest" =
role. Outsider has password and insider has not. Gave correct domains. And =
I removed all anonymous access. Still login is required from both. They =
don't get automatically that role like book says.
