WebGUI Authentication or on separate port

Post by selsner »

Hi!

I would like to have some authentication on the web gui. I read in earlier threads, that it is not possible right now, right?! The alternative would maybe be to have an nginx proxy on the second port with a http basic auth enabled.
Is it possible to have the web gui on a separate port?

Regards

Hi!

Unfortunately, afserver listens only one port, and you can't make it to listen a separate port for WebGUI.
But it is much simpler to make afserver to listen to 2 (and more) ports for everything (but i had not test it).
Then you can use the second port for WebGUI only.
You can look there:
