Re: Deny auth based on client
Add an attribute "host" to the user entry, where the value is the
fully-qualified name of the host he's allowed to log into. Add as many
of these "host" attributes as you need, each the name of a machine he's
The standard behavior is to allow access to all hosts if the "host"
attributes are missing, and allow only to the specified hosts is one or
more host attributes exist.
