Description of problem:
The hosts_access(5) man page says:
tcpdchk(8), tcpdmatch(8), test programs.
There are no tcpdchk(8) or tcpdmatch(8) man pages.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.man 8 tcpdchk
2.man 8 tcpdmatch
Actual Results: Man pages not found.
Expected Results: Either the hosts_access(5) man page would not refer
to these man pages
or these man pages would exist.
Are the test programs tcpdchk and tcpdmatch missing? They are
nor installed with the tcp_wrappers-7.6-34 rpm. Perhaps they
should be added?
tcpdchk and tcpdmatch only work with inetd, not xinetd, so they can't
So then I recommend that the man page be changed to not refer to
tcpdchk and tcpdmatch.
This is still the case for RHEL4.2
This has been fixed in RHEL4.3. This bug should now be closed.
