What else can I check? > Thanks in advance, Jose, hosts.allow is only half the story. Check your hosts.deny. I am currently working on a script that futzes with the hosts.deny file and occasionally something happens in the file. I've tested and tested and everytime I remove a particular line from hosts.deny all is well. Go figure. Not sure if your hosts.deny file has stuff in it, but if it does make a backup of it then empty it out. You should be able to connect. If you can connect then add one line at a time to your hosts.deny then try establishing a newly authenticated session until you can't. Oddly one of two things, you'll either get blocked immediately or all works and at some later time suddenly you can't connect. Hope that helps in some way. ~Mr. Anderson __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!? Tired of spam? Yahoo!
