Hello, I have an instance I am building to learn more about hubzilla. But I do have a question regarding the security model. I have contacts that are on a mastodon instance. I have the channel set as semi private. When I post I have to post public for the posting to appear on mastodon contacts. Which is OK, but the public facing wall, I want to block the content unless I have an authorized user.
Now when i do that, folks I am contacts with on diaspora can see the post with no issue. Mastodon cannot, I can let it sit there to make sure mo connectivity issue and nothing. At this point I remove the public restriction and within a few secs to a min the posts are then published to mastodon. Am I doing something wrong or is this the way it is by design?
On a side note, Friendica user cannot connect to me. But I can initiate a request to them? Everything is is beautiful except these two items. If anyone can point me in the right direction. I can't offer much but a thank you.
