[DeleGate-En] Re: How force hosts to authenticate

Thanks Yutaka for the prompt support on this one. Could you please give
me an idea on when to expect the fix to make it into your next binary
build as I'm not too familiar with the release schedule ?
Another issue I have (that could turn into an improvement request) is
that I can't find an easy way to force authentication for all sites with
the exception of some. I understand that it is possible having the same
site list specified in both the PERMIT and as connmap for the authorizer
but I guess will be easier if it could be possible to reference in the
connmap for the AUTHORIZER statement the sites specified in the PERMIT.
An exception should be made for the "*" site.
So you could have something like:

This of course could be achieved with an similar result but different
implementation with

Let me know what do you think.

Yes.  I found that AUTHORIZER with connMap is not working because the
destination information, to be matched with connMap, is not parsed
before applying the connMap for AUTHORIZER.  I will fix it as the
enclosed patch.  Thank you.
