I am trying to do the same thing and am having the same problem on a redhat enterprise box.
I did an strace on spread and it did open and read my /etc/spread.access_ip.
However it doesn't seem to ever init my ip list and I never see the
"ip_init: using file: /etc/spread.access_ip" message.
I have tried RequiredauthMethods and AllowedAuthMethods as you did.
Stuck and would greatly appreciate hearing what the secret configuration options are.
