Hairpin Masquerade

I ran across a few thread that had a config file with a "Masq. For Hairpin" in NAT.  In version 1.5.0 when you have the "Hairpin NAT" option checked in the "Port Forwarding" tab, is that taken care of for you or do you still need to do that.

What is the purpose of a masq for hairpin?

If using port-forwarding, then yes it is automatic.

If doing manual NAT and firewall or you are using a zone-based firewall, then hairpin is needed for accessing your public servers from inside your LAN using the public address or public domain name.
