I used to be able to telnet into a machine (on the internet) which used
tcpd to verify incoming connections, but all of a sudden the machine
decides to refuse my and only my connection.
Could anyone suggest a possible reason why SUDDENDLY the gethostbyname
function would fail for my address?
The logs for the machine say:
Jan 14 13:15:03 in.telnetd: warning: can't verify
hostname: gethostbyname(22.214.171.124.mtag1.on.wave.home.com) failed
Jan 14 13:15:03 in.telnetd: refused connect from
Thanks for your help and advice!
Please also CC: to my address in case I miss the ng post, thanks
