host.deny and host.allow not found


Hi folks,


Ubuntu 7.04 lamp server amd64


The files host.deny and host.allow can't be found.

$ sudo find / -name hosts.deny
$ sudo find / -name hosts.allow
both w/o printout

$ sudo iptables -L
Code:
Chain INPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination         

Chain FORWARD (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination         

Chain OUTPUT (policy ACCEPT)
target     prot opt source               destination
How to create them? TIA


Edit:

I found following guide;
http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=450853

I'll create host.deny and host.allow according to its steps.

Further suggestion/advice would be appreciated.


B.R.

Creating them manually is cool, they are just text files.

Maybe because they are called hosts.deny and hosts.allow?

Hi folks,


Tks for your comments.

The Guide works w/o problem.

However ccording to the Guide the 2 files, hosts.deny and hosts.allow, are empty. Where can I find their script?

TIA

There's no script. They are config files. The config you place in them depends on what you want to do. If you Google a bit you will find plenty of examples.
