I've been trying to configure my openssh server for the past hour or so.
I'm running LFS 6.1.  I have installed iptables, but made sure to open port
22 for ssh.

I get:

$ ssh
Connection closed by

The same happens when I try to login from a remote server, so it's certainly
not a local IP configureation issue.

/etc/hosts.allow is:

/etc/hosts.deny is:

I'm somewhat perplexed about the configuration issues that might be going
on...  The only helpful hints I've seen online have been to add the
hosts.allow and hosts.deny files.  Any ideas?
