Tcp_Wrappers


Hello,

I would like to know how to use the "paranoid" feature within tcp_wrappers. I am trying to only allow one ip address in through hosts.allow. Please look below:

sshd:192.168.1.65

My question is how do i use the "paranoid" feature to do a reverse DNS check?
Will this work?

sshd:192.168.1.65: paranoid ???

Thanks for your help,

-X

Try:

sshd: 192.168.1.65 EXCEPT PARANOID

or

sshd: PARANOID: deny
sshd: 192.168.1.65
