Just go straight to the horses mouth as it where..
(Syntax for Deny and Allow are the same):
A full IP address
Allow from 10.1.2.3
Allow from 192.168.1.104 192.168.1.205
An IP address of a host allowed access
A partial IP address
Allow from 10.1
Allow from 10 172.20 192.168.2
The first 1 to 3 bytes of an IP address, for subnet restriction.
A network/netmask pair
Allow from 10.1.0.0/255.255.0.0
A network a.b.c.d, and a netmask w.x.y.z. For more fine-grained
A network/nnn CIDR specification
Allow from 10.1.0.0/16
Similar to the previous case, except the netmask consists of nnn
high-order 1 bits.
Note that the last three examples above match exactly the same set of hosts.
