Ok, first of all, what version of Hybrid are you running? 
Second, it looks like you may be having problems with the resolver
library as it probably should be able to find that is
localhost (at least I can resolve it to that).

It looks like it's denying your connection due to broken class{} block
or broken or missing auth{} block (Y: and I: lines if you're using
pre-7.0). What do those look like? Also, when your friend tries to
connect, does he get a similar error message or does it just hang
without displaying anything?
