I did some cursory reading on tcp wrappers and didn't see an answer,
Is there a way to get tcp wrappers to get its ACLs from a database (i.e.
mysql) instead of the /etc/hosts.[allow|deny] files?
In the past I've built a web page to allow a remote user to authenticate
and thereby automatically open SSH to the remote user's IP address, and
did it by writing a small app that would rewrite the hosts.allow file
based on the content of a mysql table...and was wondering if there's a
more direct approach.
