Thank you.

I've now also tried the following:

hostname matching (host.domain.com) - OK
domain name matching (.domain.com) - OK
IP matching ( - Broken
Network matching (192.168.1.) - OK

Also something else I've noticed about matching a hostname.  If I have,
for instance, the following in /etc/hosts: test.home.domain.com test.domain.com test

and I use the following line in access.conf:


the match works and prevents login.  However if I use just
"test.domain.com" or "test" (in other words, any hosts entry other than
the first one following the IP address), no match is made and login is
allowed.  Is this expected behavior?
