/etc/hosts.deny

I‘ve followed your guide and installed denyhosts to protect on my RedHat 5.3 OpenSSH based server. However, I’ve been accidentally blocked out from my home ADSL IP address. I tried removing my blocked IP from /etc/hosts.deny, but it did blocked it again quickly. It appears that DenyHosts keeps track of the attempts somewhere on disk or memory. How do I remove my own home IP address from DenyHosts?

What are TCP Wrappers? How do I find out if a program or server (service) is compiled with TCP Wrappers? What are the advantages and disadvantages of TCP Wrappers over firewalls like Netfilter or PF? How do I protect my Mac OS X or Sun Solaris or Linux workstation by using TCP Wrappers?
