SYNOPSIS

bacula-dir [options]

TCP-WRAPPERS CONFIGURATION

Tcpwrappers looks for the service name of the bacula daemons in hosts.allow , and the service names of these daemons is configured to be different from the binary. The service names are configured to be %hostname%-%component% rather than bacula-dir (As defined in the bacula-dir.conf.in file)

So the hosts.allow entry has to match %hostname%-%component% (servername-dir for example) instead of bacula-%component%

WARNING: This means that if the hosts.allow file has the entry:

bacula-dir: ALL

you will not be able to run bconsole to connect to the local director!

The entry would have to read:

server-dir: ALL

and this will allow the console to connect to the director. (The process running is bacula-dir.)
