With my apologies if this is a quesion I should *FAQ* know the answer to, but I am not seeing it. I accept any flames.
Can nntpcached be compiled with TCP_wrapper support, to augment the nntpcache.access functions?
I have a particularly pesky user from another ISP ( yes you uu.net ) attempting to connect to our news server repeatedly. The ISP refuses to admit this is happening.
NNTPcached refuses connect:
nntpcache-client: refused connect from firstname.lastname@example.org (22.214.171.124)
But I would like to be able to use tcp_wrappers to spawn a logger and response tool before these connections get to nntpcached.
If this is not possible, I can accept that, and we will simply add an access list to our core routers to block this ISP entry to our network.
