external access protection

Post by marcelveldt » Sun Mar 25, 2018 7:57 pm

Hi,

Maybe I'm really overlooking it but how can you secure remote access to the server ?
If I open up the TCP port externally so I can schedule recordings when I'm away from home, I like the remote connection to be protected by at least a password.

It is on our todo list and is partially done already.

TVMosaic can pick up a server-side certificate and use it for https communication. The issue here is that self-signed certificate will produce more troubles then it solves. And, without https it will be DVBLink style clear text user/password, which is also bad.
