TRY-FROM(8)                Linux Programmer's Manual               TRY-FROM(8)



NAME
       try-from - test program for the tcp_wrapper

SYNOPSIS
       try-from

DESCRIPTION
       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.

       Example:

       rsh host /some/where/try-from


SEE ALSO
       hosts_access(5), hosts_options(5), tcpd(8)
