How to Enable TCP Wrappers in the Solaris[TM] 9 and Solaris[TM] 10 Operating Environments
Last updated on SEPTEMBER 12, 2017
Applies to:Solaris SPARC Operating System - Version 8.0 and later
TCP Wrappers is a public domain security tool which may be used by the Systems Administrator to control access to network services. The purpose of this document is to explain how to enable TCP Wrappers in the Solaris 9 and Solaris 10 Operating System. It is not intended as a configuration guide although some examples are included.
The TCP Wrappers functionality is provided with:
- the Solaris Secure Shell (ssh)
- Internet services daemons (inetd)
- sendmail in the Solaris[TM] 10 Operating System
- rpcbind in the Solaris [TM] 10 Operating System
About TCP wrapper software in Solaris 8, it was shipped in the "Solaris 8 Software Companion CD" as the SFWtcpd package, but the CD contains a Disclaimer in the README file indicating that all the softwares in the CD are offered to customers as a convenience as it may complement their Solaris Operating Environment but no warranty is made on any of this softwares. So TCP wrappers are not supported by Oracle in Solaris 8.
More information can be found in the relevant sshd(1M), inetd(1M), sendmail(1M) and rpcbind(1M)man pages.
