[Unbound-users] access-control

Hello again,

while reading the manpage not all questions are answer to me...

# man unbound.conf
 By default only localhost is allowed ...

I read it like "if you do not configure any access-control at all, then localhost is allowed,
all other addresses are refused"

Imagin this line:


Is access still allowed from localhost while not explicit declared?
Yes, I tried and it looks so.

 - This should be added to the documentation.
 - in this example *is* refused
   but I have to write an explizit rule to *disallow* localhost

The manpage could be more precise here ...
