I've compiled the TCP Wrappers 7.6 on fif* Solaris 7 boxes which are
located at fif* different locations. I have configured inetd.conf to only
provide telnet and ftp access, commenting out all the other services
controlled by inetd.
I have the following /etc/hosts.deny file:
And the following /etc/hosts.allow file:
ALL: LOCAL : ALLOW
in.telnetd: a few other remote IP addresses
in.ftpd: a few other remote IP addresses
in.tftpd: a few other remote IP addresses
For some reason, users in the same domain as the Sun server cannot telnet
into the box, unless I include their IP addresses in the in.telnetd line. I
want to allow everybody at the remote domain to be able to FTP and telnet
into the box.
I thought that I'd allowed telnet & ftp access for all localdomain users by
using the ALL: LOCAL : ALLOW statement, but this doesn't seem to work...
Running tcpdcheck doesn't throw up any errors.
What am I doing wrong? I can get it to work on Linux, but Solaris is a bit
tricky! I've checked dejanews, the FAQ's and the README's and nothing on
there for this particular problem! Apart from this, the TCP Wrappers work
like a dream.
Thanks for your help.
