[torqueusers] Nodes show up as down

I am having trouble with Torque server and MOM running in a test  
setup.  I have tested in 2.3.0 and 2.4.0 and both have the same issue,  
so I think it is something with the configuration rather than a bug.

The only node shows up as down in "pbsnodes" for some strange reason.

This is what I notice:

MOM side:
