Is that all you have?  That would make connecting difficult, certainly.

The readers.conf manpage is complicated, but try staring at it some more.  
There's a two-step process, where first an auth group is selected (to
match the IP) to assign an identity, and then an access group is selected 
(to match the identity) to assign permissions.

Your configuration will fail on the second step.  It might suffice to add:

access "pmc" {
    users: "local at pmc.com"
    newsgroups: "*,!junk,!control,!control.*"
}
