We are pleased to announce version 2.2 of The GNU Networking Utilities.

GNU Networking Utilities contain traditional networking utilities,
clients and servers, including ftp, telnet, inetd, rsh/rlogin, tftp,
talk, syslogd, ping, traceroute, whois, hostname, dnsdomainname,
ifconfig, and logger.

Happy hacking,

Here are the compressed sources:   (2.6MB)   (1.5MB)

Here are the GPG detached signatures[*]:

Here are the SHA1 and SHA256 checksums:

bd12fa98020cd2764e5fefbe90518f86e7874202  inetutils-2.2.tar.gz
CGEbzdz3PpqLlnuPC/kq1NNZbY8+don58ua7xM+n4+M  inetutils-2.2.tar.gz
a6b0783d315657e51a09ee281af1210cc5293b9f  inetutils-2.2.tar.xz
1Uf2kXLfc6/vaRoPeIYoD9eBrOoo3vT/S0shIIaonYA  inetutils-2.2.tar.xz

The SHA256 checksum is base64 encoded, instead of the
hexadecimal encoding that most checksum tools default to.

[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

  gpg --verify inetutils-2.2.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

  gpg --keyserver --recv-keys 0664A76954265E8C

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.

This release was bootstrapped with the following tools:
  Gnulib v0.1-4897-ga4e28bb23
  Autoconf 2.69
  Automake 1.16.3
  Bison 3.7.5
  M4 1.4.18
  Makeinfo 6.7
  Help2man 1.48.1
  Make 4.3
  Gzip 1.10
  Tar 1.34


* Noteworthy changes in release 2.2 (2021-09-01) [stable]

** ftp

The ftp client now validate addresses returned by PASV/LSPV responses,
to make sure they match the server address.  Reported by ZeddYu Lu in

Thanks to Luke Mewburn <> for discussion and fix to
NetBSD code, we used a similar solution.

** logger
** rlogind

Code for non-getaddrinfo removed, since we are using gnulib to provide
getaddrinfo on any platform that lacks it.  This may have resulted in
logger not using getaddrinfo on platforms that didn't have the
getaddrinfo prototype, even though we use the gnulib module.

** Various bugs fixes, internal improvements and clean ups.

A lot of checks were removed that are no longer needed
since we rely on gnulib for portability.

The tests/ self-test no longer fails on platforms
where sysctl is missing.
