i followed the instructions from a book, and it said the /etc/hosts.deny

well DUH, you are trying to set up portmap for use in hosts.allow, and here it was denied. Deny always takes precedence over allow so of course it was failing.



Please read man 5 hosts_access before posting incorrect information to an archived list. It doesn't help the person seeking help here, and will confuse future googlers.


so let me understand this:
- 1st is deny
- 2nd is allow overriding the deny
is it correct? or i'm just confused.

"man 5 hosts_access" says:

The access control software consults two files. The search stops at the first match:

* Access will be granted when a (daemon,client) pair matches an entry in the /etc/hosts.allow file.

* Otherwise, access will be denied when a (daemon,client) pair matches an entry in the /etc/hosts.deny file.

  * Otherwise, access will be granted.

I think that's very clear.
