For host.allow to work for ssh, you need to have tcp wrappers installed on
also, the format for the hosts.allow file is
service: host or IP list
so in your case, it should read
Also, you need to update your services file to associate sshd with port 22
If you do a search for tcp wrappers on the mailing list you will find a
conversation between myself, Corrina, and Mumit Khan (I think). Mumit had
provided a patch to tcp_wrappers version 7.6 which will be included in the
next revision of tcp wrappers, so I recommend you use his patch.
