WU-FTP and tcp_wrappers

Hi all

I am having a problem using wu-ftp in conduction with tcp_wrappers. Using the entry

ftp stream tcp nowait root /opt/ssh/src/tcp_wrappers_7.6/tcpd \
/usr/lbin/ftpd ftpd -l -a -v

in inetd.conf, the ftpaccess file is not utilised as specified by the "-a" argument. Only when not using tcp_wrappers does the ftpaccess file get utilised.

ftp stream tcp nowait root /usr/lbin/ftpd ftpd -l -a -v

I am using the ftpaccess file to suppress the hostname and the ftp version. Is this a known issue or am I missing something?

Thank you

Ruan,

I think you might want to delete the second "ftpd" in your stream. I don't think it's needed. Should just be:
ftp stream tcp nowait root /opt/ssh/src/tcp_wrappers_7.6/tcpd /usr/lbin/ftpd -l -v

Hi Connie,

Thanks a lot for your response. Took out the extra ftpd entry and it works!

Thanks
