[hobbit] Connection problems with bbproxy

Henrik, I did forget to mention that I updated the security file after I
saw rejections from the bbproxy in BBOUT.  After updating the file the
rejections stopped, but the BB server is still not updating the display.

BB uses the file $BBHOME/etc/security to list the IP-adresses that are
allowed to connect to the bbd daemon. My first guess would be that the
IP-address that bbd sees for the incoming connections from the proxy is
not listed in this file, which causes the bbd daemon to drop the
connection immediately.

I believe you need to restart BB after changing this file.
