Because of the MASS failure tries to connect to my server using random
I decided to allow only my IP to access the server.
I didnot do this before cuz i was worried this restriction will effect
any services running..
If i change hosts.allow to accept only my ip adrs and next line is ALL :
ALL : deny
is this will effect any performance? such as webmail, smtp or other
After fixing those lines, I used the webMail to send mail, then an SMTP
error came saying
(access denied) hmm any hint?
Example (The IP is an Example):
ALL : 192.168.0. : allow
ALL : ALL : deny
One more stupid question.
If i want to allow a whole class of ips, shall i write as
ALL : 192.168.0.* : allow (using the star)
ALL : 192.168.0. : allow (leave it empty)
Thanks for the help.
