@dnutan what do you think about removing that “Block access to web sites using ip address” option completely?
It was born as a way to stop malware that connected using ip addresses, but malware evolves rapidly and, while I don’t have actual stats, I think that it is no longer effective.
On the other side, transparent ssl proxy uses connect to ip addresses and can be affected if this option is on.
Finally, it “confuses” the sysadmin like @kristian1369
We could leave the feature in the code, making it possible to enable it from the command line, removing only the checkbox from the interface.
