Thanks for your help.  I have host.allow letting everything in on the
two other networks I am trying to connect to the ldap server.  I already
have iptables controlling access and really do not need hosts.allow.  I
have never tried to turn hosts.allow off... guess renaming the file or
deleting it would do.  However I don't think this is a problem with
hosts.allow in that I am getting log information that demonstrates
connection "DENIED" from ldap.  Do you have other suggestions?
