Long hosts.allow

Long hosts.allow

Post by Eric Erlands » Mon, 08 Jul 1996 04:00:00

My hosts.allow is too long, apparently.  Entries near the bottom of it no
longer work, but if I move them closer to the top, they're just fine.  Does
anyone know how long a hosts.allow can be, and how to increase this limit?
I'm runnung 5.5.



1. Allowing IP Range in hosts.allow

I'm setting up an ldap server with tcp wrapper support, and I want to
enable it only for those users within my given IP range, and deny it
for all others.  What is the proper terminology for
the /etc/hosts.allow file.    The machine I have it on does not have
access to do DNS lookups, so it needs to be in IP address format and
not expressed as a domain.

right now I have slapd: ALL : ALLOW, but I don't want that.

I'd appreciate any insights.
