Try this one: <allow user="*"/>

For debugging purpose, I sometimes disable the security:

  <policy context="default">
    <!-- Allow everything to be sent -->
    <allow send_destination="*" eavesdrop="true"/>
    <!-- Allow everything to be received -->
    <allow eavesdrop="true"/>
    <!-- Allow anyone to own anything -->
    <allow own="*"/>
    <!-- XXX: Allow all users to connect -->
    <allow user="*"/>
