Is it possible to limit Telnet Logins to host/IP's that are
specified in my host table under solaris 2.3? If so, how do I
configure this? Any info appreciated.

May I know, why ? This can help with solution.
The best way to do this is get sources of telnet and compile it,
if it doesn't accept hostname/IP if it is not in file,
but the file should be not /etc/hosts...

Limiting outgoing connections is not possible except with
I have several hostnames and addresses in /etc/hosts. I can telnet and
ping to these hostnames no problem. However, the 'host' command does
not recognize the hostnames. I am not connected to a dns at this point,
nor am I running named (I think).
Doesn't the host command basically call gethostbyname()? I wrote a
simple program and gethostbyname() returns the addresses ok.
I've tried switching the "order bind, hosts" line in host.conf, no change.
What's the problem here?
