That's what I thought too. The question though is -- why not *let* it work under explicit permission? Again, I understand the use case why it shouldn't work. But why there's no acknoledgement of a usability of a case where it makes sense. Doesn't a glance at this thread provide enough of a conviction that asking a global zone to route *all* FS related traffic is a useful thing to do? > > My personal question now is : why didn't I find it by myself ! :-) > > Because it doesn't work.

The real question is what kind of long lasting impact would allowing such a thing have. And this is a conversation I'm very interested in having.
