I just tried to connect to an ftp server (ftp.demon.co.uk/pub/unix/httpd,
via Netscape 4.77) and received the following msg


Could not login to FTP server

Sorry, you must allow reverse DNS lookups.
Contact your system administrator.


Is this an ISP issue? ... or an ident issue?  My hosts.allow has:

ALL : in.identd

and hosts.deny:

ALL : ALL EXCEPT in.identd

I don't run DNS, and have dialup internet access.
