Description Marek Habersack 2016-02-02 18:25:25 UTC
All HttpListenerRequest.IsLocal does now is to check whether the remote endpoint IP address is the loopback device (https://github.com/mono/mono/blob/master/mcs/class/System/System.Net/HttpListenerRequest.cs#L406), which is not the documented behavior of the property (https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.net.httplistenerrequest.islocal%28v=vs.110%29.aspx). The property should determine whether the remote endpoint IP address is assigned to one of the network interfaces on the machine instead.
