A little more info - it's the > matching that is failing when its
early in the address construct so..
target filter= acme.ocx.test
target= acme.*.* will match
target=acme.> will fail
target=> will fail
target=*.*.> will match
target=acme.ocx.test:subaddress will fail
are we saying target=> or target=*.> are invalid and should always
be sent as target=*.*.> I wonder ??
and another interesting point on wildcards
a target filter of acme.ocx.test.> wont match against
target=acme.ocx.test but does match against
So how do you create a filter that will pass anything that starts
with "acme.ocx.test" ?
eg acme.ocx.test and acme.ocx.test:subaddress
I dont think you can :-(
The question is I guess does the .> require there be a specific
position in the hierarchy to match
