Allowed to do what?  Allow outside access from your Domain Name or Deny outside Access to your Domain Name.  That was Batchman's original Question.

Thanks Bruce

If an item is checked, then it is allowed from outside your own domain.

In contrast, if an item is unchecked, then it is not allowed from outside your own domain.

Re: Stupid question regarding referrer security
Now that I'm looking at it again, Batchman did have it correct. But that's not surprising. He's generally very good with knowing how YaBB works.

This would seem to indicate that the actions that are checked are the specific actions you will allow from outside your own domain.

why i recommend that it is on for some items just the same way that you don't have a open ftp access on your website.



Hi Xnoddyx:

Bruce here.  Thanks for the explanation as I wasn't quite sure what the referrer security did.  So my question is, if referrer security is activated (ie. Checked under Security settings) what Board Actions should be checked off under the menu Referrer Security to prevent access from outside your Domain Name.  As Batchman stated, the Description of Referrer Security in Admin is confusing.  It reads as if you must Select (ie: Check off) the Board Action to ALLOW outside access.  From the explanations I gather that the proper procedure is to select (check off) the Board Actions to prevent outside access.  Is that correct and if so what Actions should I check off.

Hope this doesn't sound too confusing.  Thanks Bruce
