Description Karl Mikaelsson cendio 2014-04-04 13:30:57 CEST
They control to what address vsmserver/vsmagent binds to, which can be useful to limit ThinLinc traffic to certain networks.
Comment 1 Pierre Ossman cendio 2014-04-08 11:03:35 CEST
We also should consider removing them. In many cases it will be insufficient to bind to a single address, so full functionality would mean changing the architecture to support multiple listening sockets. Better to use a local firewall in that case.
Comment 4 Karl Mikaelsson cendio 2018-05-14 16:33:22 CEST
Decided to implement this as a trivial bug. I decided to remove the parameters instead of adding documentation, based on the reasoning in comment #1.

"git grep listen_hostname" finds nothing in the ctc tree any longer, so I'm calling this done.
Comment 5 Pierre Ossman cendio 2018-05-16 10:12:19 CEST
Confirmed that there are no traces of "listen_hostname" left. Also checked that the services bind properly, with and without IPv6 enabled on the system.
