I've been reading on the arch wiki, that one needs to use /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny (see this article). I'd like to lock down my R5.5 box a bit by only allowing connections from my LAN IP ranges (say 192.168.0.2 - 192.168.0.5).

Can someone more experienced help me w/ this? When I add the line in /etc/hosts.deny that is suggested in the wiki article, I can't connect at all - this is after I added the exception in /etc/hosts.allow for my IP range for ssh.

Thanks for the help as always!

Example /etc/hosts.allow:
Code:
sshd: 192.168.0.2


Example /etc/hosts.deny:
Code:
ALL: ALL: DENY


I thought the hosts.allow would trump the hosts.deny but apparently not unless I have it setup incorrectly.
