The LDM configuration-file on host ftpsvr.er-rsaiia-unc.int contains the following: allow ANY rsaintrf.midds.jsc.nasa.gov This should be replaced with allow ANY ^rsaintrf\.midds\.jsc\.nasa\.gov$ allow ANY ^rsaserv\.midds\.jsc\.nasa\.gov$ The periods should be escaped because the third field is, actually, an extended regular expression (i.e., pattern) and a period will match any character. The leading caret and trailing dollar-sign make the pattern more rigorous, so that it only matches the appropriate hosts. The additional entry for "rsaserv" is needed in case the LDM on "ftpsvr" reverse-resolves the incoming IP address to rsaserv.midds.jsc.nasa.gov rather than rsaintrf.midds.jsc.nasa.gov (apparently, that host has two names). You should verify that the domain name for "rsaserv" is, also, midds.jsc.nasa.gov before committing to this change. The two, modified entries above could be consolidated into the single entry allow ANY ^rsa[^.]*\.midds\.jsc\.nasa\.gov$ This will allow hosts in the midds.jsc.nasa.gov domain whose name starts with the string "rsa" to receive data. Another alternative for any host in that domain would be allow ANY \.midds\.jsc\.nasa\.gov$ The exact form is up to you. Regards, Steve Emmerson
