Take a look at below example

acl My_Computer1 src 192.168.0.1
acl My_Computer2 src 192.168.0.10
http_access deny My_Computer1
http_access deny My_Computer2


My_Computer1 and My_Computer2 are the ACL names (you can use any name)

In the above example you are blocking the access to both the IPs. You can further simply the above 4 lines in just 2 steps
