RE: Cannot connect to OpenLDAP Server remotely

/etc/hosts.allow and hosts.deny were both empty.  With them both blank, it
should allow everything.  For fun I changed both files to allow the IP
addresses of the local machine and the remote machine, and to deny
everything.  I can still access the server locally, but I still get can't
access the server remotely.
