As I said, this adds complexity and should only be added once everything
else is working. I will now assume that you have a otherwise working setup
of smokeping and that you want to go for the extra credit.

Yes, anywhere, but for readability I normally place it at the top.

<Directory "/usr/share/smokeping" >
  SetHandler perl-script
  PerlResponseHandler ModPerl::Registry
  PerlOptions +ParseHeaders
  Options ExecCGI
  Order deny,allow
  Deny from all
  Allow from <your IP and/or your domainname.tla goes here>

Yes, you need to add your preferred list address ranges and or domains to
the allow statement above. For more in depth understanding of how to
configure this see http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/howto/access.html

Please note that the three first lines in the "Directory" declaration are
only relevant if you use "mod_perl"
