i just got a bit of curiosity
what'd happen if 2 fediverse servers tried to communicate, but communication was only possible in one direction (eg, a server running on a lan network and a public www server try to communicate)


cause i have a pleroma server on a vm, but i don't wanna risk causing any problems

I really wonder what would happen, but i don't wanna risk causing shenanigans

I suspect it'll probably just give me an error like "instance does not exist" or something
But i'm still so so curious

Show thread

I had to feed the curiosity
Result was pretty much what i expected

Also yes i've got a fake domain for my LAN pleroma instance (you can make fake domains for LAN use either via hosts.txt or via selfhosting a dns server)
