We are running AEM 5.6.1 with stand alone JAR file and want to know how to allow certain IP addresses to connect to author instance. Can some one provide a solution for this.

Problem: You want only certain IP address to access your author instance

Use case: You have a dispatcher in front of author instance and you want everyone to access author through dispatcher.

To achieve that you should use firewalling (either on a network level of using the mechanisms of your operating system). CQ doesn't have such a feature built-in. Of course you can add a custom request filter to check the originating IP address and do a redirect in case it's not the dispatcher. But that sounds rather ugly to me.
