Question YPBIND, YPSERV and /var/lib/securenets

The error coming from ypserv after adding the following line in /var/yp/securenets and rebooting Fedora 16.

After starting YPSERV the follwoing error was in /var/log/messags:

ypserv[1740]: refused connect from "" :40231 to procedure ypproc_match (co.lab,shadow.byname;-1)

ypbind would not start.

Any help would be appreciated.
