           Summary: rsyncd resolves hosts stupidly
           Product: rsync
           Version: 3.0.8
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: core
        AssignedTo: wayned at samba.org
        ReportedBy: jwz at jwz.org
         QAContact: rsync-qa at samba.org

rsyncd matches host names in the "hosts allow" line of rsyncd.conf with reverse
lookups only. This fails when you don't have control over reverse DNS, which is
common these days.

To save me from having to type IP addresses instead of host names into my
config file, please make it do forward lookups instead (or, in addition).  Call
gethostbyname on the items in "hosts allow" and compare those IPs against the
incoming IP.
