Re: tcp wrapper

basically, tcp wrapper is useful only for programs that run under
inetd/xinetd, that is - started only when they are called. if you don't
use inetd or similar, tcp wrappers are almost useless to you. 

firewalls work with daemons too, and allow you to control connections
and track them. _always_ use a firewall, and use tcp wrappers for
services that you think are not subjected to heavy usage... otherwise
start them as daemons...

hope it's correct and hope this helps =)
