Login/pw without mios.com
« on: October 06, 2011, 02:43:50 pm »
How do I add a login/pw requirement when accessing my Vera outside of my network?

I am trying to eliminate mios.com out of the equation and have port forwarded my Vera so it can be accessed remotely.

Thoughts?

If you are using ui4, local authentication is broken. It should be working in Ui5. However I would advise against it as the login information will be sent in the clear.

it looks like by default, UI5 is using digest auth, not plaintext, so that's a step in the right direction wrt security.  That being said, you still probably still wouldn't want to open up the vera to the wide open internet without true SSL configured or at least an ssh tunnel.
