Summary: rsyncd.conf allow does not like CNAME
Product: rsync
Version: 2.6.9
Platform: Other
OS/Version: Linux
Status: NEW
Severity: normal
Priority: P3
Component: core
AssignedTo: wayned@samba.org

QAContact: rsync-qa@samba.org


When using rsyncd.conf - if the host allow uses a host name and when the FCrDNS
of the host name is verified, if the reverse pointer references a CNAME - it
doesn't work. The following fails.

hosts allow = *.ctyme.com
