Description Rudolph T Maceyko 2002-05-14 15:09:43 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20010901

Description of problem:
The patch given in bug ID #17847 does its matching with regard to case, so it is
unlike the behavior of the old SSH that the function was take from.  SSH
converted hostnames to lowercase before doings its matching.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. add entry in hosts.allow for MiXeD-CaSe domain name using * or ?
2. observe failure to match the host 

Actual Results:  May 14 14:30:00 host sshd[26855]: refused connect from
UP.PER.CASE.low.er.case (ip.ad.dr.ess)

Expected Results:  connection should be allowed as though the hostname had been
specified without wildcarding

Additional info:

I added a comment to bug ID #17847, but that's marked as closed, so I created a
new bug ID.
Comment 1 Florian La Roche 2002-06-11 16:41:27 EDT
Should be fixed in 7.6-22 or higher.
