Why given the host name of '2002:92a:8f7a:13:9:42:74:19' is the policy 
file being set up to use 'localhost'? If the -h had been a hostname or 
its ip(4) address then I wouldn't expect the policy file to use 
'localhost' because as I understand it such a hostname means it will 
accept remote connections.
