Telnet security on an AIX


I need to have a way to restrict access to our server only to one specific address.

I've heard about hosts.allow, but I think you know better ways.


Anyway the AIX will need to accept telnet connections from only one external IP (office located on another city) and from all the internal IP addresses (our sales people Ips)

Thanks

And what if somone fakes (pretends to be) that IP address? This is called "spoofing" and means that such a security scheme is invalid. Find another way. One alternative is to use ssh only and not telnet.

You will need to install SSH, what version of AIX are you running?
