From looking at the code, I don't think that would work as you expect.

If /tmp/list contained "addr1 addr2 addr3", it would be equivalent to

and %{REMOTE_ADDR} in { "addr1 addr2 addr3" }

i.e. a direct match against the entire file contents, not

and %{REMOTE_ADDR} in { "addr", "addr2", "addr3" }

which is what you'd need.

It might be possible to express this requirement using some combination
of Require/Satisfy, or failing that, mod_rewrite; I'd recommend asking
on the httpd users' list instead:


if nothing works out you could file a bug, it might be possible to
enhance mod_ssl to make this work somehow.
