TCP-WRAPPERS CONFIGURATIONTcpwrappers looks for the service name of the bareos daemons in hosts.allow , and the service names of these daemons is configured to be different from the binary. The service names are configured to be %hostname%-%component% rather than bareos-dir (As defined in the bareos-dir.conf.in file)
So the hosts.allow entry has to match %hostname%-%component% (servername-dir for example) instead of bareos-%component%
WARNING: This means that if the hosts.allow file has the entry:
you will not be able to run bconsole to connect to the local director!
The entry would have to read:
and this will allow the console to connect to the director. (The process running is bareos-dir.)
