Bear in mind also that your .erlang.cookie should have permissions
-r-------- i.e. readonly to owner, none for anyone else

My guess is that your cookie are not set properly. Place an .erlang.cookie
file in your home directory on both machines. Place the same text string in
both then start your distributed nodes erl -name <name> or erl -sname <name>
you can also use a command line option to set your cookie what ever you use
make sure that they are the same on all boxes.

Guys and gals, 

I got an error while trying to setup distributed messaging. My server module
says `Connection attempt from disallowed node...'. I always have used
messaging only one host, but now need to communicate between different
hosts; on one host server works properly. What can you advise? How can I
make certain node allowed?
