I just looked through the LDM log files on idd.cise-nsf.gov and see repeated
connection (REQUEST) attempts by  A quick check shows that
there is no forward (IP -> name) DNS for this machine:

% nslookup

** server can't find NXDOMAIN

The connection attempts started at 10:13:40 on September 26.

I see _no_ connection attempts by any named machine in the cicsnc.org domain,
so the ALLOW that I setup previously is not being triggered.

In order force acceptance of feed REQUEST attempts from, I
have hardwired an IP <-> name correspondence in the /etc/hosts file
on idd.cise-nsf.gov.  The next time that attempts to connect
it should be recognized by the LDM as ldm.cicsnc.org, and data should
start flowing because of the ALLOW that is in place.
