tcpwrapped sendmail does not accept hosts.deny entries
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:07:24 EST
Description of problem:
sendmail-8.13.1-2 appears to be compiled with libwrap.so.0 due to the command
However, after specifying ALL: ALL in hosts.deny, i am able to connect to
sendmail's port 25
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. specify ALL: ALL in hosts.deny
2. restart sendmail service
3. connect from another machine to port 25
connects every time
connection should be refused
sendmail rejects the mail after issuing the MAIL command, there is no need to
reject the whole connection. And it's not a tcp_wrappers bug neither.
Can you confirm that it's ok so that I can close the report?
