	Check /etc/hosts.deny.  The system installs with tcp-wrapper
and this defaults to a 'paranoid' state, ie, all remote connections
are refused until you change it.

	Do a 'man hosts_access' to see how to set up /etc/hosts.allow
and /etc/hosts.deny.  Tcp wrapper is an excellent security tool, and
you should be able to configure it all without tool much trouble.
