      Hi all.

      I’d love to hear the best practice regarding making a certain actionpad availabe via internet to the customer, with a seperate password (so other then the admin password of the core S).

      Would you do this via portforwarding on the router? And how do you avoid the page where you either choose ‘actionpad’ or ‘configuration’?

      or is there another (better) way to do this?

      Thanks again,

      Robbert

      Hello Robbert

      The ActionPad itself is not Password protected, so if you know the address, you can access it.
      The WebUI configuration is protected by a password.

      When you address the Core S, you will have the following options:
      http://<ip-address>/ –> This will display the welcome screen, where you can choose between ActionPad and configuration.
      http://<ip-address>/ActionPad2/ActionPad2.html –> This will lead you to the ActionPad directly.
      http://<ip-address>/webui/ –> opens the WebUI
      http://<ip-address>/logs/ –> gives access to the log files

      When using a PC, LCE2, LCE2mx the Actionpad needs <ip-address>:<port> instead of the <ip-address>.

      You will find more information in the manual.

      Regarding access from the internet, you should not give direct access from/to the internet especially with a Core S, in order to keep network traffic low.

      I would probably set up a website that will display the Actionpad in a way, that the user cannot work around this site. The site would only allow limited access.

      I hope, this helps.

      Has the introduction of Sympholight 5 brought any new possibilities regarding protecting an actionpad thru pin / password?

      Due to the structure of the ActionPad, that all viewers see the same page and have the same access level, it would need too many changes to set up users and pins and of course this is not the focus of the ActionPad.
      But there are ways to workaround:
      – using the Rest API with autorization
      – using SymphoCity with user and role management, this solution also has access to the Rest API
      – using self created web pages with a form. Since V5.0 there is a small webserver integrated.
