Remote login ssh, allow access from specific IP

On Mac OS X 10.6 (and older) I use hosts.deny and hosts.allow to allow only certain IP addresses to access the Mac thru SSH.

 

Apple has deprecated this method, I know that allow / deny certain IP is now handled by pf and anchors

 

Despite a long search and asking for it on some Mac fora, I have not found easy way to implement it.

 

Who can tell me how I can apply it (and maybe explain how the principle works) or points me a site that explains it (with a clear example file)

 

 

 

I found IceFloor is this a good alternative?
