Subject Re: ip filteration at runtime

I don't know about your specific question but, there may be workarounds.  For 
example, you could serve your admin application from a Virtualhost that 
listens to a different port and then block access to that port with a 
firewall that can be dynamically updated (like Linux netfilter if you're 
running on Linux).  You might also want to handle access in the application
