netgroup-auth.diff   [plain text]


This allows you to use the samba style @netgroup names in hosts allow
and hosts deny.

This patch still needs autoconf support for portability.

To use this patch, run these commands for a successful build:

    patch -p1 <patches/netgroup-auth.diff
    ./configure                           (optional if already run)
    make
