Not to mention:

The server ip is (server)
The host ip is (dragon)
Both of these addresses are assigned statically.


===============================================       dragon.localdomain      dragon
::1             dragon6.localdomain6    dragon6    server.localdomain      server

Your /etc/hosts is wrong. 'dragon' should be set to *on both 

Also check that 'server' address is *on both machines*.
