problem with OpenSSH on arch linux 0.7

it seems i can't get openssh to function properly on arch linux 0.7 (base)
i ran pacman -S openssh to download it
but when started i only get "Server unexpectedly closed the connection" in putty when trying to connect to it
I tricked a little with the config file resulting in it starting faster than before (which for some reason was about 10-15 seconds before) but i still get the same problem when trying to connect!
a friend of mine has the same problem.

does anyone know why it does this and how to fix it?

nope, it didn't, thanks anyway

anyway i started it using /usr/sbin/sshd -d to get som debug messages and when connecting i received the following message:

debug1: Connection refused by tcp wrapper

I solved it! After searching for the error message on google i found out that the tcp wrapper checks with hosts.allow and hosts.deny.
And hosts.allow was empty, automatically denying access from all hosts
