Well, no, it isn't. The server doesn't control what the client
does. The "insecure" option only says the server will accept such
connections -- you have to tell the client to make them. On BSD and
Solaris that's easy, but on Linux you need to hack the kernel. I have
just sent a message explaining how do do that. Note that I still don't
think this is your problem, but you might as well check.
