Subject [jira] [Commented] (MTOMCAT-92) Bind tomcat to a self-chosen network interface
Date Wed, 28 Aug 2013 14:04:54 GMT


Daniel Cassidy commented on MTOMCAT-92:

It's precisely because tomcat-maven-plugin is used during development that it is important
to bind to the loopback interface only. To do otherwise exposes development code to the network
and is a security risk.

Binding to loopback only ought to have been the default.

> Tomcat is bound to (all interfaces) by default. I feel the need to change this
binding to e.g. localhost ( or another interface by adding a <host></host>
to plugin configuration in pom.xml. This is often necessary for security or firewall reasons
during the development of web applications.
