Re: Portmap, -h, and /etc/hosts.allow

Is there a reason that portmap opens a TCP socket bound to INADDR_ANY,

-h Specify specific IP addresses to bind to for UDP requests.
Also, given a machine with two interfaces, 10.9.8.55 and 22.214.171.124
I've also noticed that adding
portmap : 10.9.8.0/255.255.255.0 : allow
portmap : ALL : deny
to the /etc/hosts.allow file will not block this TCP port from being
connected to via the 126.96.36.199 interface.
portmap doesn't use tcpwrappers (hosts.allow) but hosts_access.
I'd say this is a bug. Am I being too anal here?
