Hello, and thank you for your response.

The error is as follows:

@backup jim]# monit status
Skipping redundant host 'localhost'

This is my config for that item:

set httpd port 2812 and
    allow localhost        # allow localhost to connect to the server and
    allow xx.xx.xx.xx
    allow admin:password      # require user 'admin' with password 'monit'

This did work in 5.16, and allow access from both localhost and the m/monit

Hello Jim,

Monit 5.17 or later expands the $HOST variable into the system hostname only. 
The FQDN is used only in sender address for alert delivery.

The warning about duplicate localhost warning - please can you post the full 
error as reported by monit? If the warning is related to the "set httpd" 
statement, it should show up only if you have a duplicate "allow" option with 
the same host and the template is:

        Skipping redundant host '<hostname>'

To remove the warning it should be sufficient to just remove the duplicate 
allow option - only one will remain and the CLI access will still work.

Best regards,
