better log message for denied by server

Issue #12 wontfix

created an issue

Hi.

When trying to gossip with a server that doesn't allow one that server prints something useful like: 2013-08-07 02:08:02 Reconciliation attempt from unauthorized host <ADDR_INET [1.1.1.2]:45022>. Ignoring

but the "own" server only says: <recon as client> error in callback.: End_of_file

Would be nice if that could be extended, at least with a hint, that it could be that.

    The remote server is IGNORING the local server. Your proposing the remote send some message along the line of "I'm ignoring you because...". That is not ignoring.

    I see nothing here to fix. It hasn't been an issue for anyone before.

    Nah, I didn't meant to have the remote server anything sent.

    The local server sees "Uhh... I cannot contact the remote server for some reason (whichever that is),... and prints: <recon as client> error in callback.: End_of_file

    For end-users that's not very obvious what it could mean... are some creepy TCP errors? Blocked ports... or as it seems in many cases, simply a remote server that denies you. All I proposed what to add a hint what it could be.

    Again,.. was just an idea,... feel free to close.
