Description Joerg Dorchain 2002-03-06 06:42:47 EST
Description of Problem:
When you use a pipe to another program as a port, it would be nice to have an
address agument for the remote system, especially when you have several systems
when the port definition only differs the the remote system name..

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Actual Results:
One port definition per system

Expected Results:
One port definition per method

Additional Information:
This allows a port definition like this
port ssh
type pipe
command /usr/bin/ssh -a -e none -l uucp -x -o batchmode=yes -o
stricthostkeychecking=no \H

and then have several line in your sys file like 
system <name>
address <FDQN>
port ssh

As another idea, port tcp could be replaced with this patch and netcat.
