where is tcp wrappers?

Does anyone know where I can get a compiled version of tcp_wrappers version 7.x for sunos5 or solaris 2.x. I do not have a C compiler on my machine and I can't find the compiled version anywhere. All I can find is source code.

Thanks for any help

You will not find security programs such as the TCP wrappers as part of any standard distribution because of the sensitivity of their use.

I suggest that you arrange to have a willing individual compile the source with the desired configuration and have the file encrypted with a secret password. You would need to obtain the secret key for the file over a secure channel, download the file to your destination system, and decrypt the file.

I appreciate the offer and I'll give you the points just for being the only one to offer your services, but I already got it compiled. I found a copy of gcc and used that.

Thanks anyway

This makes no sense. The end situation was exactly as I had
predicted. I had compiled and had the distribution ready
to be downloaded if you had just asked the right question,
but that wasn't the correct answer for the question you
had asked. The answer was that you won't find a binary distribution, it has to be custom built. Argh, and I learn
some more.

It does make sense if you think about it...

I originally needed a compiled version of wrappers that would work on my machine. I didn't have a compiler and figured someone else must have been in the same boat at one time. So I asked for a compiled version.

You replied : "I suggest that you arrange to have a willing individual compile the source with the desired configuration" but since you made the suggestion and didn't offer to do it, I assumed that you were not that willing individual.

So then after talking to several people I found out that I can get a gcc compiler(free) and not have to pay for a cc compiler. So I did, compiled it myself, and it works.

I was going to have this question removed, but procrastinated in doing so, and then df replied, offering his services.

You can't hear the tone of my voice through E-Mail, but I am not trying to come down on you or teach you a lesson. I am simply trying to state a fact, which is : I have a lot of respect for someone who's first reaction is "I can do that" rather than "Have someone else do it". Especially when the person is a total stranger and getting virtually nothing for it. I'm not saying that you wouldn't have; you just didn't in this case.

I asked the right question and df gave the right answer.

Thanks again df for you generosity.
