Well, there are two things going on.  First is that the IP is not
resolving to a hostname.  This may just mean the reverse DNS is not setup
right for that IP (try running `host xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx` on some other
machine), or that something is broken in your machine's configuration.
The other thing is that your readers.conf is probably set to reject
everything except localhost.
