Re:request: dont show internal IPs to users
Im my opinion there is a reason we have DNS so in any case HC should use DNS as much as possible. Users should use DNS in scripts not internal, not external IPs, so my biggest request would be for HC to fix the admin to use DNS names not internal or external IPs.
The cases I see, where my customers would need a IP and not a DNS is 1) if they are actually handling DNS on other DNS servers than ours or 2) the DNS is not in place yet / moved / deligated yet
in both cases they would never every need internal IPs of cause so because of HCs display of internal IPs now I have customers ask, what is this strange IP, why does it not work when I enter the IP in outlook and stuff like this. We dont have the luxury of Your clever customers Im affraid :)
I also consider NAT a security improvement - we are using it :) BUT I would be very interested in hearing why you think showing internal IPs to customers has any impact on increasing security? Showing external IPs to your customer is a security risk? How do you think its different from allowing DNS to resolve to your external IPs of your mailserver and www server? :)
and why you think its better to show internal IPs than DNS information?
