HI

I am the original poster  and I am the one who had the allow in the
wrong place..  I have it in /etc/hosts.allow..

So I apologize for putting it in the wrong place and appreciate
everyone who pointed out where it should be....

And I think my original problem still is there.

I would be happy to post my config file...

It is in /usr/share/denyhosts/denyhost.cfg

On the other version is was in /etc...

I used the README.txt to configure...  And read stuff from the website.

TIA.

Marvin
