I guess we should actually do that if we had any non-local(host) entries in there by default, but we don't touch the default pg_hba.conf from pg_createcluster. Possibly we could add some hostssl example in comments to the end of the .sample file so people could grow the habit of using that instead of host (I certainly aren't doing myself that yet), but I'd rather see that changed upstream. So, how about something like this for the end of pg_hba.conf.sample? # Examples for allowing access from given networks: #hostssl all all 192.0.2.0/24 @authmethod@ #hostssl all all 2001:DB8::/32 @authmethod@ (These are "documentation" networks from RF5737/RFC3849.)
