Unfortunately, I don't understand the mechanics of tcpwrapper to answer 
your question. (If I did I probably could have figured out the answer.) 
In any case most Linux distributions seem to come with tcpwrapper 
enabled. The only information I have is in the manual pages: 
hosts_access(5), hosts_options(5)
