[Spread-users] spread deamon ip filtering?

We're using spread 4.0.0 on Linux. We'd like to be able to do
IP-based filtering of clients.
>From the sample.spread.conf file included in the spread source:
#The current choices are:
# NULL for default, allow anyone authentication
# IP for IP based checks using the spread.access_ip file
#RequiredAuthMethods = " "
#AllowedAuthMethods = "NULL"
So it looks like I would put the following in my actual spread config file:
RequiredAuthMethods = "IP"
AllowedAuthMethods = "IP"
But what about this "spread.access_ip" file---where does it live? In
the same directory as the config file? Or the spread runtime
Also, what is the format of the file. Do I have to list individual
IPs, or can I specify subnets? If can specify subnets, what is the
format (e.g., 192.168.1.0/24 vs 192.168.1.0/255.255.255.0)?
What if I have two spread daemons running on the same server, and both
need different IP whitelists?
