It is not in the 4.0 version that is on Solaris, and I understand the NT
will be functionally equivalent. Of course, setting up security based on
domains is a bad idea. Subnets are IP based, and therefore 'safer'. Even
those should not be trusted. Domain names, because of the open nature of DNS,
should never be relied upon for determining access.
Use a secure method to restrict access.
