this is not possible. we have one huge subnet which is shared between 
different groups.

if there is not a better solution i use "hosts allow = @groupname" 
where groupname is a nis netgroup (but then i would have to maintain 
these maps too) or use the include feature so that the smb.conf does 
not get cluttered with huge amounts of ip addresses.

something like "hosts allow =" would be really 
nice, though.
