Hi friends, I’m following this tutorial:
and I’m registering a free host on www.freenom.com and everything is working perfectly.
But there is one thing I am still concerning is that it would be possible for other people to access to my OH2 webpage. I need to create a login/password box ( the same as OH1 system). Because back in the days when I used OH1, whenever I entered the path to my OH1 webpage, it always required ID & password to login. At that time I used myopenhab cloud service as a tool for me to access to OH1 from outside the home network.
Is there anyway to create login box as I described? Please show me how <3. Thanks in advance alottt!!!
Hey, you already found the correct article. Authentication is covered here: http://docs.openhab.org/installation/security.html#nginx-auth
Btw the whole process is automated in the openHABian configuration tool.
Oh thanks for your reply…
I registered a free domain on freenom.com called openhabxyz.tk (just an example) and forwarded this domain to 192.168.100.6 (my OH’s internal server IP - which is also my PC’s IP). Everything worked fine within the local network, it appeared the login box as I’d described before and was so wonderful. But I couldn’t access OH outside the home network.
So I did forwarded with my router from 192.168.100.6:8080 to port 80. On freenom website, I changed my domain to point to my router’s external IP, now I can access my OH by typing openhabxyz.tk on the web browser outside the home network but it doesn’t require any user name and password to login , it’s just like access my OH from localhost:8080. Is there any problem?
Below is the picture of my router’s configuration when I forwarded its port:
