Thanks Simon. If I understand you correctly then a client can belong to
In a pool let's say I allow one class and deny another like so:
allow members of "foo";
deny members of "bar";
range x.x.x.x y.y.y.y;
If a client belongs to both foo and bar will he be allowed or denied?
I think you're going to tell me that the answer is "allowed" because
that's what I think I'm seeing.
