my hosts files looks like this: localhost digdug-laptop

# The following lines are desirable for IPv6 capable hosts
::1 ip6-localhost ip6-loopback
fe00::0 ip6-localnet
ff00::0 ip6-mcastprefix
ff02::1 ip6-allnodes
ff02::2 ip6-allrouters
ff02::3 ip6-allhosts

my hosts.allow file:
# /etc/hosts.allow: list of hosts that are allowed to access the system.
# See the manual pages hosts_access(5), hosts_options(5)
# and /usr/doc/netbase/portmapper.txt.gz
# Example: ALL: LOCAL @some_netgroup
# If you're going to protect the portmapper use the name "portmap" for the
# daemon name. Remember that you can only use the keyword "ALL" and IP
# addresses (NOT host or domain names) for the portmapper, as well as for
# rpc.mountd (the NFS mount daemon). See portmap(8), rpc.mountd(8) and
# /usr/share/doc/portmap/portmapper.txt.gz for further information.
