I am looking for a way to deny telnet and ssh to one specific user. So far I've only tested with telnet and my attempts have been limited to various hosts.deny entries:
in.telnetd : user@server
in.telnetd : firstname.lastname@example.org
in.telnetd : user@IP_address
in.telnetd : user@.domain.com
None of these work. The only thing I've found that does work is:
in.telnetd : IP_address
But this is only a semi-viable solution because we will soon have multiple logins for the one username from different servers and sub-nets. Ideally, I'd like to be able to deny telnet and ssh access to this username regardless of where the login originates. I suppose it would be possible to specify each server IP, but that'll be a bear to maintain. Thanks in advance!
The platform is RHEL 5 32-bit; kernel is 2.6.18-164.6.1.el5.
