What about using localhost? I'm not sure, but it seems to me that localhost cannot be connected to from outside the machine. On Unix, a Unix socket is the best idea; on Windows, localhost would prevent access from outside the machine, and Windows boxes typically have only one user, so I'm not concerned about internal attackers. --Guido van Rossum (home page: http://www.python.org/~guido/) _______________________________________________ Zope-Dev maillist - [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://lists.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope )
