read the thread "allow editing only from one IP". I posted my solution
2008-09-25, but sadly got no feedback.

I used a separate page listing IP addresses _or_ host names to be able
to use also dynamic DNS entries.

But - as I wrote 2008-09-25 - I'm not sure whether i used the correct
method, and I would'n suggest anyone to use it unless someone with
deeper knowledge reviews my solution.
