This would be a very cumbersome solution for most situations. In general 
i wouldn't know what the exact IP's my students would have. and 
wildcards would be out of the questions because the general access labs 
here have IP's very similar to those of the classrooms. A better 
solution would be the one I outlined, with a password released at the 
time of the exam.
