TCPDMATCH(8)                         System Manager's Manual                         TCPDMATCH(8)

       tcpdmatch - tcp wrapper oracle

       tcpdmatch [-d] [-i inet_conf] daemon client

       tcpdmatch [-d] [-i inet_conf] daemon[@server] [user@]client

       tcpdmatch predicts how the tcp wrapper would handle a specific request for service.  Exam‐
       ples are given below.

       The program  examines  the  tcpd  access  control  tables  (default  /etc/hosts.allow  and
       /etc/hosts.deny)  and prints its conclusion.  For maximal accuracy, it extracts additional
       information from your inetd network configuration file.

       When tcpdmatch finds a match in the access control tables, it identifies the matched rule.
       In  addition,  it displays the optional shell commands or options in a pretty-printed for‐
       mat; this makes it easier for you to spot any discrepancies between what you want and what
       the program understands.

       The following two arguments are always required:

       daemon A  daemon  process name. Typically, the last component of a daemon executable path‐

       client A host name or network address, or one of the `unknown´ or `paranoid´ wildcard pat‐

              When a client host name is specified, tcpdmatch gives a prediction for each address
              listed for that client.

              When a client address is specified, tcpdmatch predicts  what  tcpd  would  do  when
              client name lookup fails.

       Optional information specified with the daemon@server form:

       server A host name or network address, or one of the `unknown´ or `paranoid´ wildcard pat‐
              terns. The default server name is `unknown´.

       Optional information specified with the user@client form:

       user   A client user identifier. Typically, a login name or a numeric userid.  The default
              user name is `unknown´.

       -d     Examine  hosts.allow  and  hosts.deny files in the current directory instead of the
              default ones.

       -i inet_conf
              Specify this option when tcpdmatch is unable to find your inetd.conf  network  con‐
              figuration file, or when you suspect that the program uses the wrong one.

       To predict how tcpd would handle a telnet request from the local system:

            tcpdmatch in.telnetd localhost

       The same request, pretending that hostname lookup failed:

            tcpdmatch in.telnetd

       To predict what tcpd would do when the client name does not match the client address:

            tcpdmatch in.telnetd paranoid

       On  some  systems,  daemon  names have no `in.´ prefix, or tcpdmatch may need some help to
       locate the inetd configuration file.

       The default locations of the tcpd access control tables are:


       tcpdchk(8), tcpd configuration checker
       hosts_access(5), format of the tcpd access control tables.
       hosts_options(5), format of the language extensions.
       inetd.conf(5), format of the inetd control file.
