distcc problem

Hi. I am trying to setup a distributed compilation environment using distcc and distccd, i ran the daemon on my computer and another computer on the network, then i updated my /etc/hosts file, giving that host a name corresponding to its IP address, i made sure that the hostname works by pinging the hostname, it replied! Then i made a file named 'hosts' in ~/.distcc/ , this file contained the hostnames of the computers which would be the part of a distributed compilation, i placed localhost and the other host in this file separated by a space, daved the file, then i tried compiling a program using "make -j4 CC=distcc", but it doesnt do a distributed compilation, i have checked that distcc is in the path, moreover i downloaded and installed the newer version of distcc i.e 2.12.1, that made no difference, when the compilation starts i check the netstat, my computer has no sockets open with port 3632 of other computer, that means no distributed compilation. What should i do?

Try restarting the daemon. Usually, daemons only read config files at startup, so you need to restart them if you make changes.
