[Xymon] It it possible to have a test that doesn't propagate status to the xymon page?

This is 4.3.10 compiled by myself, on Linux. I would rather use the .default. than the command line for xymongen.
What's the syntax for default? I don't see it in the documentation I had:
0.0.0.0 .default. # nopropred:tls nopropyellow:tls
I also tried with "+tls" instead of "tls"
".default." starts and ends with a dot.
This was the first entry in my hosts.cfg file.

Something is fishy. With 4.3.17+ on Solaris it certainly is able to work
on the .default. line. I use it all the time.
will add the "msgs" test to the list of tests not to propagate. Putting
it on a hostline will limit its effect to just that host. Putting it on
a .default. line will leave it in effect until the next .default. line.
My configuration uses a new .default. at the top of each display group,
so I know it works reliably.
If it isn't working for you on .default., I suggest confirming:
the syntax of the tag
that there isn't another .default. line later
Do things because you should, not just because you can.
