You can create a text file that contains a list of the IP addresses for the computers to include. You can import this text file during the Push Deployment Wizard, and then deploy the client software to the specified computers.
The text file used must contain each IP address on a separate line. You can comment out the IP addresses that you do not want to import with a semicolon (;) or a colon (:). For example, you may want to temporarily remove addresses on a subnet that is unavailable during the deployment.
The use of a text file is not recommended for IP addresses assigned by DHCP.
