Hi, sorry I was burnt out from lack of sleep and beating my head
against the wall :) I'm using the base system sendmail.
I just put (as an example):
sendmail : 127.0.0.1 : deny
as the first line of /etc/hosts.allow,
kill and restart sendmail (just in case) and do a
telnet localhost 25
and it still connects:
Connected to localhost.
Escape character is '^]'.
220 crusty.math.missouri.edu ESMTP Sendmail 8.12.11/8.12.11; Mon, 30 Aug 2004 09:35:29 -0500 (CDT)
221 2.0.0 crusty.math.missouri.edu closing connection
Do I need anything special in sendmail.cf? I don't think I used to ...
Can anyone confirm this on their system?
