Ok thanks for your answer !!

Just in case some are interested in: I have made a mistake by telling that
putting "domain" to does not work. It works but I did not pay
attention that domain was already assign to "local_ip_v4" so it was assigned
2 times and obviously it could not work...
I am sorry for that.

Thanks a lot,
