DISTCC can't find the servers


I've got a Gentoo Stage1 install on a 2400+ (512meg ram) which is already running X etcetera. But I want to get Gentoo on some more computers and I'm testing distcc on the 2400+ machine so I can get better compile-times .

I've got an amd64 3200+, and opteron144 and a dual opteron 244 so it should be a lot faster. If it would work :-( (I know, I'm probably doing something very wrong)....

What I did:

Got distcc on the gentoo machine using emerge distcc. Added FEATURES="distcc" in my make.conf . Also raised the -j number to 3 . (just wanted to try with my 3200+). I've added the distcc dir to $PATH :

export PATH="/usr/lib/ccache/bin:/usr/lib/distcc/bin:${PATH}"
/usr/bin/distcc-config --set-hosts ""
( is the 3200+ which acts as server).

Afterwards I've downloaded distcc manually and installed it (using the manual
) on my Sarge based 3200+. Then I did:

distccd --daemon --allow "" ( is the gentoo machine).
My manual ( said:
/etc/init.d/distccd start
but this wasn't available on the debian box, so I tried :

/etc/init.d/distcc start which worked fine (it seemed to me ;-) ). When trying to compile on the gentoo box, emerge complained it couldn't distribute the work (top on the server told the same, it wasn't used!!!) .

So I tried getting distcc using apt-get , I reconfigured everyting, and it still doesn't work.

What's wrong?
