What's probably going on is that winscp is using scp and secure ixplorer
is using sftp. The ssh daemon doesn't seem to care about reverse lookups,
but the sftp daemon does.
You could either:
a) Configure the sftp daemon to not require reverse lookups (possibly
via hosts_access if it uses libwrap)
b) Kill the sftp daemon and let ixplorer revert back to using scp
rather than sftp.
