Description of problem:
tcp_wrappers is denying connections from 192.168.1.117.. after commenting out line by line in hosts.deny I have determined it is matching on the line "ALL:188.8.131.52/255.255.0.0"
I also modified this to "ALL:209.234." and it still matches.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.I uncomment the line in hosts.deny
2.requests from 192.168.1.117 are denied
Actual Results: I was unable to connect to the computer from the local subnet
Expected Results: I should have been able to connect
I can't reproduce this, what service do you connect to?
Is this still of an issue?
The services we were trying to use were SSH and telnet. We have since moved to
FC5 and are now using iptables, therefore I am uncertain if this problem still
I was unable to reproduce this with SSH neither so I'm closing with WORKSFORME.
Feel free to reopen (and change the distro version) if you encounter this issue
