restrict ssh access

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
Right now I am using tcpserver to control access from IPs to my
OpenSsh servers on my Linux or BSD boxes.
Is it natively possible in OpenSsh  in stand alone mode? If so how do
I do it?

Yes - though support for that is a compile-time option in the OpenSSH

  --with-tcp-wrappers[=PATH] Enable tcpwrappers support (optionally in PATH)

- i.e. if you didn't build it yourself, it may not be present. A quick
check on a Linux (FC5) and a couple of FreeBSD boxes showed it as
present there though:

$ nm -D /usr/sbin/sshd | grep hosts_access
         U hosts_access

Same as any other daemon AFAIK, using "sshd" as the daemon process name.
