Hi there,

You can't as the server won't know about the PC name on a network
Only IP and Hostname

Kind regards
James

you can allow/deny a range using a partial domain name, or a range of IP addresses.   The latter is a bit tricky as it has to be specified in CIDR notation, which allows you to specify a contigous set of addresses on well defined boundaries.      You may have to specify multiple small groups to deny if you're not blocking on netmask boundaries.


for example:
   deny from   9.0.0.0/8      # blocks all of the 9.0.0.0 network
   deny from  192.168.1.0/24  # blocks only the last octet (0-255) of addresses
   deny from cnn.com     # block on a domain name

see http://httpd.apache.org/docs/1.3/mod/mod_access.html#allow    for more info on the allow/deny syntax

and

for more info on CIDR notation
