The reason for the denial is the lack of _both_ forward and reverse DNS for
your machine.  The following 'nslookup' invocations demonstrate the lack of

Name to IP works:

% nslookup unidata.rc.usf.edu

Non-authoritative answer:
Name:   unidata.rc.usf.edu

IP to name does NOT work:

% nslookup

** server can't find NXDOMAIN

It is the IP to name DNS that is needed by the LDM since the
IP address of the machine requesting data is included in the
data REQUEST, and the LDM on the upstream machine needs to be
able to translate that IP into a fully-qualified hostname
which can be checked against ~ldm/etc/ldmd.conf ALLOW rules.

As soon as both forward and reverse DNS is available for your
machine, the 'notifyme' invocations below will work.  Please
contact your networking folks to get the DNS issue resolved.
