That doesn't make it much clearer. You know that MAC addresses are only
visible in a local subnet, right? Why don't you restrict access by IP
address? I have a hard time imagining a reasonable scenario where what you

To answer your original question, I don't think there is any mechanism that
allows for restricting access based on MAC address. Certainly not within
Cyrus, possibly using iptables or such.
