tcpd and pam+.rhosts



How does pam and tcpd work together?  I have 5.0 on all the Linux
boxes.

If I have 

1.2.3.4 in /etc/hosts.allow 

but 1.2.3.4 is not in ~/.rhosts (and not in /etc/hosts.equiv) would
rlogind accept an rlogin request from 1.2.3.4?

How about for the other possiblities: like
1.2.3.4 in /etc/hosts.deny and in ~/.rhosts ?

Would it give me extra security if I put
1.2.3.4 in /etc/hosts.deny 
and also disallow .rhosts and do not put 1.2.3.4 in hosts.equiv?  Or
it is not necessary to fiddle with the .rhosts and hosts.equiv files
once I blocked the connection with tcpd (I am kind'a worried about IP
spoofing). 

Thx
