NAME

       try-from - test program for the tcp_wrapper

SYNOPSIS

       try-from

DESCRIPTION

       The  try-from  command can be called via a remote shell command to find
       out if  the  hostname  and  address  are  properly  recognized  by  the
       tcp_wrapper  library,  if username lookup works, and (SysV only) if the
       TLI on top of IP heuristics  work.  Diagnostics  are  reported  through
       syslog(3) and redirected to stderr.

       Example:

       rsh host /some/where/try-from
