How to allow a router's address in /etc/hosts.allow?


Hi!

I have a new internet provider and since then my IP-address changes all th time.
So I decided to give my router's address in http://www.dyndns.com/ and put it in the /etc/hosts.allow file of ma server like :
Quote:
ALL:myuser.myadresse.org
.
I of course restarted sshd. But I still can't log in.
What did I do wrong?

thanks.

Are you using a dsl router. Has you ISP provided you with DNS server entry that can be placed /etc/resolv.conf or is it placed automatically and why in first place you want to edit /etc/hosts. Please elaborate.
