Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-2811) Specifying -h with default security manager bars clients from connecting from any host
Date Thu, 14 Jun 2007 23:53:26 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-2811?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#action_12504967

Dag H. Wanvik commented on DERBY-2811:

Yes, using another property would be good, I think.  I am less sure about
your concrete name proposal: to me a host has a name (usually) and an address,
and it the case of derby.drda.host one may give it a value of either a name or an IP address.
This would be the case for this new property as well, so I would suggest
something like derby.security.host.

If I understand correctly, the new property, if not set, would default to the same value as
derby.drda.host, possibly overridden by -h option,
providing that isn't "" or "::" (in which case one would translate it
to "*"). That way existing apps would run unchanged, I think.

Sounds good to me.

> I think this is because SocketPermission only recognizes "*" as a catch-all.
