It could have to to with the fact that you're probably connecting to  
the server through the '::1' interface. This doesn't seem to work if  
'::1' is not explicitly listed in '/etc/hosts.allow'. Connecting to  
the loopback address might also help. So instead of




to tell whatever command you're trying to use must use the IPv4  
loopback address instead of the (on IPv6 enabled systems default) IPv6
