tcp wrappers on tru64 4.0F

Hello everyone

Can anyone give me info on tcp wrappers for Tru64 unix ver 4.0F on Alpha server ES40. I would like to know from where I can I download the software or how do I need to procure it. Also is any licensing required for this package ? Where can I find how to use tcp wrappers effectively , because I have only a slight idea about tcp wrappers and am not very well aware of all the facts related to it.
Please can anyone guide me ?
Thanks

Re: tcp wrappers on tru64 4.0F

the internet express kit contains the tcp wrapper, but I can not find a version running on 4.0x systems (<5.6).

you can also download a public tcp wrapper software from:
ftp://ftp.porcupine.org/pub/security/tcp_wrappers_7.6.tar.gz

Re: tcp wrappers on tru64 4.0F

Hello Ralph,
Fortunately I have another setup where I have tru64 unix 5.1B , where I tried tcp wrappers from the internet express kit as you rightly suggested. But what I found out was that after installing tcp wrappers telnet or ftp to the server became very slow while establishing connection. why is it so ? is this normal ? the time taken is almost 1-2 mins. or have i done something wrong ?

Re: tcp wrappers on tru64 4.0F

have you checked the name resolution like dns. Does it work without tcp wrapper?
