1. /etc/hosts.deny and /etc/hosts.allow


I am using Linux at home (RH6.1) and I'm the only one who logs in at
home. I was wondering if I just put in the /etc/hosts.deny

and in the /etc/allow
ALL: 127.

This should be enough to make sure that no-one can telnet, ftp,
whatever to my Linuxbox from the internet? I'm just starting with
Linux security. If everything is OK, I'll connect it to the internet.

Does anyone have more info?
