        It's good :-)

        The directory and files should be 700 (600 for the options file).

        The reference to "peer" is, I think, referring to the "peer" entry
in the options file. There is a samples directory containing commented
configurations in the source code when it's unpacked.

        You didn't keep that key secret, now did you :-) Make sure you
change it on both systems.

        You might want to post both options files and let us know which
system has the one that is complaining. Also, what is the network like
between the two systems? I might not be able to followup right away, but
you might get other answers...
