1.2 (VDT 2.0.0). If you are looking for information for the most recent

Using the VDT with TCP wrappers
TCP wrappers provide application level host-based access control to inetd and xinetd servers. By default this policy is described in /etc/hosts.allow
. The VDT does not include TCP wrappers, but since we do run servers via inetd/xinetd. This document assumes you're running TCP wrappers and describes the policy changes required to access the installed services.
The VDT does not run the Gatekeeper directly but instead calls it through a wrapper script which sets up the environment. To control access to the Gatekeeper use the program name vdt-run-globus-gatekeeper.sh
The VDT does not run the GridFTP server directly but instead calls it through a wrapper script which sets up the environment. To control access to the GridFTP server use the program name vdt-run-gsiftp.sh
