Description Noël Köthe 2005-10-06 14:20:28 UTC

Please add following to the smb.conf(1) manual page section. It would
be good if "ALL" and "" were mentioned.

       hosts deny (S)
              The  opposite of hosts allow - hosts listed here are NOT per-
              mitted access to services unless the specific  services  have
              their  own  lists  to override this one. Where the lists con-
+             flict, the allow list takes precedence. If you want to
+             deny all by default, use keyword ALL or netmask
+	      and then explicitly allow hosts with "hosts allow".

              Default: hosts deny = # none  (i.e.,  no  hosts  specifically

              Example: hosts deny = 150.203.4. badhost.mynet.edu.au
