It is not clear to me what you are trying to do when you get blocked.
I assume deploying a site?
This post is not clear to me and may not be clear to others.

@publii-slpa, how I could bypass my 127.0.0.1 ??
do you know this forum is based on a WordPress and WordFence is an Applicative Firewall dedicated to WordPress ???March 16, 2021 at 2:33 am #5390publii-slpa
Okay. I think I get it. I am not familiar with WordFence. I have heard of it, but it is not in my wheelhouse.
how I could bypass my 127.0.0.1 ??
I am not sure what you by bypass, however, you can avoid using 127.0.0.1.
Both Windows and Linux have a file called hosts. You can simply add a bogus domain name in your hosts file and use that.
This page, https://www.howtogeek.com/howto/27350/beginner-geek-how-to-edit-your-hosts-file/. gives step by step instructions on where to find your hosts file and how to edit it.
Just be sure NOT TO use the 127.0.0.1 IP address. If your computer is on a LAN or Wi-Fi LAN, then it is likely that DHCP is assigning your computer an IP address.
This page, https://kb.iu.edu/d/aapa, should help.
I am not sure this will help your situation. There maybe specific rules that are tighter for Ip 127.0.0.1
If WordFence has options or rules to allow various types of access, you may need to make changes to your settings.
This is out of the scope of using and developing for Publii. I do not want to speak for the good people here.
You may be better advised to visit the forum https://wordpress.org/support/plugin/wordfence/ and post a question there.
