Description of problem:
Even if htt_server runs without the tcp socket, it gets 'Denied the access from localhost.' when the applications is realized.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.add ALL:ALL into /etc/hosts.deny
3.run any applications
Actual Results: Denied the access from localhost.
Expected Results: the applications should be allowed to connect to.
This problem happens because htt_server *always* ask tcp_wrapper whether or not the host is allowed to connect to. but tcp_wrapper isn't needed for the unix domain socket anyway.
Created attachment 107708 [details]
backported patch from upstream
Customers will always have a secure configuration and it may block iiimf access
even iiimf is unix domain by default. The patch is very small and low risk.
It is built in -10.EL now
Confirm fixed in im-sdk-12.1-10.EL.
