i have installed pure-ftpd. i have it in daemon section in rc.conf and it's working (wisible from outside) althought my /etc/hosts.deny is
ALL: ALL: DENY
and in /etc/hosts.allow isn't any notice about pure-ftpd (just sshd).
isn't that weird?
thanx for answers.
If your version of pure-ftpd was build without tcpwrappers, but might explain it.
