Help me verify quick what it is you are looking for.  I gather that you
want to do is setup a text list of IP's and specify whether to allow
them or deny them access to the server.  If this is the case I think I
can help you.  I have such a list set up on our server for denying
access to IP's that try to hack us, or are infected with a virus.  I
have a lot going on right now though so it may take me a day or two to
document the process and get it to you.  But no fear, there is hope.
