What do you want to allow?  Everything or just local access?

"Allow from all" does what it says.

"Allow from 127.0.0.1" will only let you work on the same machine as
itself, and only if you access the webserver using 127.0.0.1.

"Allow from 192.168.1.105" is almost the same as above, except for only
allowing connections if you use that 192... address.

You can also do combinations.

e.g. Allow from 127.0.0.1 192.168.1.105

And more general addresses, so that any computer within your LAN would
be allowed.

e.g. Allow from 192.168.1

-- 
[tim bigblack ~]$ uname -ipr
2.6.22.1-41.fc7 i686 i386

Using FC 4, 5, 6 & 7, plus CentOS 5.  Today, it's FC7.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
