Restricting Telnet to IPs

Dear Experts,

Is it possible to restrict telnet to specific ips in Digital Unix

Old 07-02-2002
yes it is possible. you need tcp wrapper
installed on your system.

then configure
/etc/host.allow to only allow telnet for certain ip address.

you may also want to deny other traffic this can be done in /etc/host.deny

You'll need a basic understanding of tcp wrappers.

you can check with which tcpd if your OS supports TCP Wrappers
