[AG-TECH] Connection refused when attempting to enter venue

Dear friends,

I am a beginner trying to set up a single server AccessGrid node. I  
think I have hit a simple thing to resolve, but I just can't seem to  
figure out where I have made a mistake.

I can connect to the server with the Venue Client at the address:
(Using localhost works too for that matter)
When I try to connect using the local IP address of the server,

I get an Access Denied error:

Could not enter venue
Error entering venue
Connection refused.

This happens both from the server itself as well as from another  

I have tried to figure out if there is a configuration somewhere where  
I have managed to set the localhost IP as the only IP number to listen/ 
respond to or something, but I haven't found that.

So it looks like I am doing something silly, and I would very much  
appreciate a hint. Sorry for being lost with something so basic.

Best regards
