xinetd rejects connections?


I recently installed glftpd with my new gentoo distro. I can connect to the ftp from the localhost but if i give it a try from "outside" syslog gives me this error.

Sep 5 23:54:41 bender xinetd[5705]: START: glftpd pid=6065 from=
Sep 5 23:54:41 bender xinetd[6065]: FAIL: glftpd address from=
Sep 5 23:54:57 bender xinetd[5705]: START: glftpd pid=6066 from=
Sep 5 23:54:57 bender xinetd[6066]: FAIL: glftpd address from=

The only thing i can think of is that xinetd has some kind of hosts.allow that keeps rejecting my 192.168.* network. Since gentoo doens't use hosts.deny,allow i don't now what to do. If u have a clue, don't hesitate!!
