Good question, I thought that it was configured to allow all hosts from
our domain, but I just tried to telneting(port 119) to the server from the
server and can successfully list all the groups.  Maybe it is a
permissions problem.  This is what I have in readers.conf:
auth "" {
	hosts: ", *"
	default: "local at"
Should that work, allowing something like machine1 at

Thanks for the speedy reply!
