Those lines are equivalent to
    ok ip 66.135.197.7/27
    ok ip 66.135.209.198/27

Both now yield "does not start on 27-bit CIDR boundary" complaints.

Should the error checking of CIDR blocks be relaxed if a hostname
instead of an IP address is specifed?

What about the other places in the DCC code where CIDR blocks are
specified including `dccifd -p` and the dccd client blacklist?

(Those are not rhetorical questions nor addressed only to John Sutton.)
