PATCH: read hosts.allow entries from separate files
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:58 EDT
This patch (straight from FreeBSD 4.x) changes tcp_wrappers behaviour
slightly by allowing you to obtain names to be matched from separate files, e.g.
sshd : /etc/ssh/ssh_allow_hosts.global /etc/ssh/ssh_allow_hosts.local : allow
sshd : ALL : deny
This can be _very_ handy if you have to synchronize data like that, or don't
want /etc/hosts.allow too cluttered up.
Please consider this for RH 7.1.

oops. Forgot to add the patch :-)
Fixed (patch added) in tcp_wrappers-7.6-17.
