I've tried to drop myself in the deep end back into Fedora. I've used FC3 in the past and setup as a DHCP server with success
But now i'm having a go at setting up a DNS server using bind.
What i'm trying to do at the moment is block any access from a specific hostname/ip by adding it in the /etc/hosts.deny file.
I've used the ip like this "10.10.200.1.deny" and restarted the network services which didn't work. I then tried using "srv-0220.deny" in the file and that didn't work either. So i then tried using the full dns name for the server with .deny on the end and that didn't work either.
Anyone able to point me in the right direction?
Thanks for reading.
EDIT: Oh forgot to mention. As the machine i am trying to build is within a private corporate network i didn't bother enabling the firewall when i did the original install of FC4. I didn't even bother installing gnome/kde, just using the cli.
