Besides doing this, you can also use basic authentication or have the applications pass in a user name and password inside of the SOAP message. Having the caller send in a user name/password also gives you the ability to determine who exactly did the update.

subject: Re: [WEB400] Web services security
I fixed the subject line.
So, if my URL for the web service is something like "http://Mywebservices.mma-online.org:9999/MyApplication/services/MyWebService"
;, I would use the following?
Order allow, deny
Allow from 220.127.116.11
Since "/MyApplication" isn't really a directory under the Apache server, I assumed that I couldn't use the <Directory> section. I was looking at this section of the Apache manual http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/sections.html

I don't have the Apache manual handy but you can certainly limit access to the web service URL by IP address. This can be done with any URL. Of course IP addresses can be spoofed but if this is only internal then that should suffice.
