[GeoNode-users] allowed_host & proxy_allowed_host

I think I understand the meaning, but I'm not sure the correct usage.
Currently in my case I set them as default:

ALLOWED_HOSTS = ['', 'localhost', '::1']
PROXY_ALLOWED_HOSTS = ("", 'localhost', '::1')

but I wonder if it is correct, because it allows only the request from localhost, isn't it?
I'm working on the configuration of a geonode already on production server, so
I wonder if the config above is correct, or should I use '*'?

ALLOWED_HOSTS are the authorized names and ip addresses that you can use to reach the server. See the django docs for more info.
PROXY_ALLOWED_HOSTS are the names and ips that the proxy is allowed to connect to, for example for importing external services into the map composer (not the geonode services)

Hi everybody,

I would like to understand better the importance of the two variables:


which are now mandatory (?) in the config file 'local_setting.py' in the master version.
Currently I set up this two variables as stated in the documentation:

ALLOWED_HOSTS = ['', 'localhost', '::1']
PROXY_ALLOWED_HOSTS = ("", 'localhost', '::1')

However I wonder if this is correct for my environment.
I'm working for deploying a geonode on my server and not in my localhost (desktop) as well as 
any VM. I have a server with its own ip and hostname.

How should I use these two variables? What do they mean?
