Markku Kolkka suggested on the Phoebe list that the restrict line should have a 
numeric IP address, instead of a server name.

Comment 2 Brent Fox 2003-01-02 20:04:07 UTC
Should be fixed in redhat-config-date-1.5.6-3, which should appear in Rawhide in
the next day or so.  QA, please verify.

Comment 3 Brian Brock 2003-01-08 16:38:18 UTC
Appears fixed to me, resolving as rawhide.
