[SUMMARY]: tcpwrappers & tftpd

Just to summarise that I discovered shortly after posting that it was 
due to the tftp command which i issued on my client.

Not fully noticing that tftpd sets /tcpdboot as its "home" direcory I 
unknowing placed a /{pathname} before the file which i wanted to "put"

eg. c:\tftp <host> put 4690.conf /tmp/4690.conf

Simply removing the /tmp/ from the put command worked a treat. However 
there was a typo in my original post (nice work Crist J Clark for 
spotting that one- my bad after having tcpd on the brain...) /tcpdboot 
and not /tftpboot.

Also  Gerard Henry noticed a wierness in hosts.allow for the netmask 
after a host, I actually discovered during the setup of tcpd that the 
/32 notation after an IP address ( ) doesn't 
actually work and omitting everything after the host IP (/ onwards) 
actually works fine! As well as being *everything*  working 
which Gerard pointed out.

Thanks to all who emailed me with a reply, some close but no cigar sadly ;)
