Default hosts.allow and hosts.deny

I just got SSH up and running on openBSD 4.9. My problem is that I am able to connect to SSH when I have my IP of listed in the hosts.allow file.

When I add "ALL: ALL" to hosts.deny, I can not longer SSH into my box.

I delete the hosts.deny file I can connect again with no problems.

The error I get is as follows:
"ssh_exchange_identification: Connection closed by remote host"

Any ideas what is going on?
