Description Jeff Largent 1999-12-06 01:57:46 UTC
Not all items after a comment(#) are ignored
for example if the following exists:
sshd: 192.168.1.2   # Local: more comments

when trying to ssh into machine the following error shows in system logs:
error: /etc/hosts.allow, line 13: bad option name: "more
