from the debug output, it looks like your hostname is 'local.' and your
ip address is '' but your client is connecting to
'localhost' at ''.  what you should do is add an 'allowed:' to your conserver.cf file to get the client to connect to
the server.  so, now that i've looked at the instructions you followed,
you'll need a conserver.cf file that looks like:


then start conserver and you should be able to connect.  looks like the
logfile for 'routera' is already being filled with info, so that should
be good.
