FMS 13 on OS X 10.9 - Block access by IP address but allow host name access

Your post

Hi, I'm in the process of installing an SSL certificate for my FileMaker 13 Server, which runs on a Mac mini with OS X 10.9.4. 

 

My server has failed a PCI compliance check and I have to get an SSL installed so it won't be susceptible to a man in the middle attack. This is going to be fine for anything that accesses the site via it's domain name, however the PCI compliance scan also scans by IP, in which case the scan will continue to fail. 

Is there anyway I can get the FileMaker Server web host to only accept named requests and drop anything that's directly on an IP address?
