The second patch below allows outsiders to connect to your AUTH port (113).
I found that allowing this will cut down a lot on the number of pointless
"Deny" log messages you will get if you don't have this, because a *lot*
of things out in the real world (most notably Sendmail) _will_ try to
connect to your local auth port whenever you connect out to them.
Or you can simply ignore them completely w/out logging them, since AUTH
is a useless protocol, and you really shouldn't have a real AUTH daemon
running on your box in any case.
On this topic also consider the "dummy" AUTH server in inetd...
