Weirdness with LOCAL

Post by barbaz » Sat May 09, 2015 8:08 pm

Was trying to tweak my ABE rules to allow my local server to originate only certain external requests... but I can't use LOCAL even though it is LOCAL, but it works if I explicitly specify the IP?
My ABE rule has the form

Code: Select all

Site .thesi.te
Accept from thesi.te .associatedsi.te [MY_LOCAL_SERVERS_IP]
Deny INCLUSION
Sandbox


Works like that. Replace [MY_LOCAL_SERVERS_IP] with LOCAL and I can't embed images from thesi.te on page in my local server.

Why?
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!
