Is there a way to specifiy a specific port to allow someone to connect to in hosts.allow? Honestly, I'm trying to run an Unreal Tournament server and need to allow those ports in. Please let me know.
I guess I should clarify...is there a way to run a process as a daemon that works with hosts.allow?
Support for hosts based access has to be added in the application. Such things were once added to some daemons included with inetd using tcpd, but that won't do what you're looking for. You only use hosts.allow if the application explicitly supports it.
