    How to add IP to host.allow


    Hi all,

    I am maintaining Linux box from remote location and I added my static IP address to hosts.allow file, so that I can only access the Linux box using PuTTY SSHD. Problem is I got changed my static IP address, so now I am unable to connect using PuTTY SSHD. The only option I have to connect my Linux box using WEBMIN. Is there any option to change the Old IP address to New IP or any command to modify the IP address?

    Thanks in advance,

    Sridhar Rayudu.

    Hi,

    You can edit the Host.allow file and change the old IP to New one after connecting through Webmin session. I hope this is possible.
