Projects / tcp_wrappers


The tcp_wrappers package allows you to monitor and filter incoming requests for the SYSTAT, FINGER, FTP, TELNET, RLOGIN, RSH, EXEC, TFTP, TALK, and other network services. It provides tiny daemon wrapper programs that can be installed without any changes to existing software or to existing configuration files. The wrappers report the name of the client host and of the requested service. The wrappers do not exchange information with the client or server applications, and impose no overhead on the actual conversation between the client and server applications.
