E0299: RESTRICT does not block aliases

Product: Gline DSA og DIWS
Platform: All
Status: Open. Get around available
Last updated: 1997-08-05 10:24:07

The RESTRICT directive in dsa.cfg allows specific Gline parameters or
combinations of parameters to be blocked for clients permitted by its
associated filter.

Blocking use of the G&R syntax parameter does not block use of the
Datanet syntax for the same parameter. For example, blocking use of -dn
(specify remote node for a connection) did not block use of -SCID,
which is the Datanet syntax equivalent.

The get-around is to specify two lines, one blocking the G&R syntax, and
the other blocking the Datanet syntax.

restrict -filter internal   # addresses passing the filter cannot choose
        -dn *                # the default node to which they connect
        -scid *              # not using the alternative syntax either
        -da *                # the application mailbox to connect
        -dmb *               # not using this syntax either
        -ln *                # or to listen for incoming connects

filter internal
deny tcp   # they are not permitted by the filter
deny tcp     # and so DO NOT meet the restriction
permit tcp *                # rest are permitted, and meet restriction
