Use MAC address filtering with internet sharing
Authored by: mace on Oct 08, '04 05:08:25PM

The apple article is for assigning a specific address to a specific computer. I don't think it will deny access to computers that don't have that address. This will deny access to any computer not on the list, and it's simpler - just punch in the MAC addresses of the computers, and bootpd will take care of the IP addresses by itself.

Of course, you could use both to deny access to other computers and assign one the allowed computers a specific IP address.
