Ok, I think I see now what is going on. All of the hosts showing up as
being refused in the log are either not configured in or are configured
with a testip tag and using an ip that is different from the ip that it is
reporting from.

That makes sense, but would make it hard for me to use the feature.

Thanks for the stimulating discussion!
