how to set the ip address in apache web serve config file?

Hi all,
we are try to use ip address to control who can access our web page. i want to set ip address in apache httpd.conf file. but  i found i have to put fixed ip address to that file. otherwise it does not work.
if we don't have fixed ip address for everyone, what i should do?
i tried to put ip address like: 10.10.*.* OR proxy server ip address, but they are not working.

do you have any idea? or i don't have to use ip address to control the access?

thanks a lot

in httpd.conf file:
----------config ip address part----------
#
# Control access to business partner pages
#
<Location /private/partner>
  Order Deny,Allow
  Deny from all
 
  # yyy proxy server
  Allow from xxx.xx.xxx.xxx
 
  # employee A
  Allow from xxx.xx.xxx.xxx
 
  # employee B
  Allow from xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
</Location>

Instead of "10.10.*.*" try just "10.10".

Hi,

Just change the order as:

Order Allow,Deny

Then remove "Deny from al"

It should work like that. Don't forget to restart your web server after you've saved the file.

Cheers,
K.
