tftp question

RH 7.2

I am attempting to get tftp working but I'm having a problem. On the server, xinetd has libwrap options compiled in. I have a deny all policy in my hosts.deny file and the following entries in my hosts.allow file:

in.tftpd:.10.151.2.6



But...when I attempt to tftp from 10.151.2.6, I get the following errors in the server's /var/log/messages:

Jul 27 17:01:21 zcynsm1 xinetd[1297]: libwrap refused connection to tftp from 10.151.2.6

Jul 27 17:01:21 zcynsm1 xinetd[1282]: tftp service was deactivated because of looping
Jul 27 17:01:26 zcynsm1 in.tftpd[1217]: connection refused from 10.151.2.6


This looks like there is a problem with the /etc/hosts.allow file, bu t I cannot figure out what it is. Is in.tftpd the correct service to put in the hosts.allow file?

Any suggestions?

Thanks!!

never mind....I just noticed the leading "." in the IP address in the hosts.allow file. That fixed it.
