Somehow I don't think it is. The closest match I could find was a section
called "Block Sites" (I think that is a nanny feature that blocks
_outbound_access to the named sites); I added it to the list "Block Sites
Containing these Keywords or Domain Names" in hopes that it was implemented
as a bidirectional block. I'll see when he starts back up again.

Isn't there any way to add a port by number (not service name) to
hosts.deny? How about if I define tcp/81 as my_http in /etc/services?
