Visitor in my localhost


#1

Now I am confused, I was running local stack manager, and dynamic update client OFF, and logged into localhost, yet someone managed to visit me.

I didnt know this was possible, I thought localhost was completely isolated, but clicking my name TPed him right to me.

No localhost is only a shortcut for 127.0.0.1, but you are still connected externally and if you have your firewall open people can still join.

Adrian I think, this was me. I have clicked at a name without looking so right, where it is, because I have wanted to test my script on a other domain. And suddenly I was there. But I have seen nothing, only heard some music and finally I’m crashed. But it was written, that this domain was not connected.

OK, so I expect the only way of getting there is to click my name, if I go invisible, then people would need to know my IPv4 to get in.


#5

An easier way would be to simply restrict access to just your name in the web interface under security.


#6

Thanks but I think my way is easier, one click, no restart required. I like to switch back and forth.

For now, yes. Lets hope people don’t start scanning for it.
