NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       try-from - test program for the tcp_wrapper

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       The  try-from  command can be called via a remote shell command to find
       out if  the  hostname  and  address  are  properly  recognized  by  the
       tcp_wrapper  library,  if username lookup works, and (SysV only) if the
       TLI on top of IP heuristics work. Diagnostics are reported through sys-
       log(3) and redirected to stderr.


       rsh host /some/where/try-from

SEE ALSO    [Toc]    [Back]
