Just want to know if it is possible to define an address range for the

I tried to add range in this way and this way but this didn't worked.

Support for CIDR notation was added in version 5.1, it's not in the version you're using.

Documentation is rare, someone any clues?
I am using openssh 4.7p1

The man pages were updated when the CIDR support was added (note that by default these pages reflect the current development version, however they have not changed much since 5.1): (the section on the Match keyword) and (the PATTERNS section).

If there's anything not covered or not clear I would be interested in hearing about it.

usually comes from bad judgement.
