Dear sirs;
this is my first post... wow!
Besides that. I have a little problem: i mounted a server on a LAN
DHCP-based,
but the server has a static IP.
On this server, runs an application that is configurable via web; so
that Apache runs
on that machine.
My question is: how can i grant the administrative access only to the
hosts i want,
knowing i have got no IP on which rely to use IPTable or something like
that???

You could use iptables rules that match the mac address of your allowed
machine. It's not infallible, unless the other users on the LAN don't have
root (Administrator) access. You would also have to change the rule when you
change network card in the admin box.

But the normal thing is probably to have some sort of encrypted connection
(ssl, perhaps ssh tunneling), and allow access based on password or similar.
