I have a config like:

server {

  # combine basic auth and ip whitelisting
  satisfy any;
  allow <my_static_IP>;
  deny all;

  auth_basic "Restricted";
  auth_basic_user_file /etc/nginx/nx4/.htpasswd;

  location /.well-known/acme-challenge/ {
    auth_basic off;
    default_type "text/plain";
    alias /var/lib/dehydrated/acme-challenges/;

But it seems not working.
Access from allowed ip is fine, from all other get

2018/06/27 14:54:12 [error] 1333#1333: *11176 access forbidden by rule,
client: ...

nginx -v
nginx version: nginx/1.10.3

Can anyone confirm this?
Best regards
