So it works now?  Hmmm. on my system hosts.allow and hosts.deny are
both empty (exept comments), which allows everything from everywhere
(nobody get excited, I'm also running netfilter packet filtering :),
and this is the default I think as I haven't touched them.

These files only apply to services run out of inetd.  I've always
run sshd as a stand alone deamon (though there may be and inetd option
on install I forget)

The case sensitivity of host names is news to me, but after alittle
testing it looks like /etc/hosts *is* case sensitive while DNS lookups
are not, hum, live and learn :)

I'm be interested to know if it still works if you remove the
hosts.allow entry (assuming you haven't edited hosts.deny) 

:Thanx again for the fast response.
:Sure to use this channel again

I think this list is one of the best things about Debian (though apt
is a close second).  I owe it alot...
