flexraid security

Postby synergenerator » February 17th, 2012, 9:38 pm

Hi All,

I tried to get my question answered over at the flexraid forum, but still haven't done the research to get iron out the problem. Still, I thought I would pass it along here as part question part comment. I really like the flexraid WebUI, but the "havetheknowhow" guide sets it up to be unsecured. I need to do the research to get it secured through https or what I would really like is a login splash like deluge uses.

Any thoughts?

Hi there,

I'm afraid I don't have the solution. You've raised an interesting question tho and one I've never thought about before. No one in my house apart from me would know, or indeed care, how to access the flexraid UI.

I wouldn't even know where to start?! AFAIK, there is no option to secure it with a password. At least I've never seen one.

I'd be interested to hear if you find a solution to it tho.

So this is an old thread, but I did want to provide a follow up to this in case anyone else finds this thread via a search.

What I did was setup a reverse proxy server to access via https. Secure your apache /w a cert and then just setup a reverse proxy. This is a edited version of my apache site config file: I edited out my url to be domainaddress instead.

Also, maybe it's a new feature but you can set the login under system control panel.

Code: Select all

 Listen 1234 # Set this to incoming port

<VirtualHost *:1234> #Set this to incoming port
    SSLEngine On

    # Set the path to SSL certificate
    # Usage: SSLCertificateFile /path/to/cert.pem
SSLCertificateFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/domainaddress/fullchain.pem
SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/letsencrypt/live/domainaddress/privkey.pem
Include /etc/letsencrypt/options-ssl-apache.conf
ServerName domainaddress

    # Servers to proxy the connection, or;
    # List of application servers:
    # Usage:
    # ProxyPass / http://[IP Addr.]:[port]/
    # ProxyPassReverse / http://[IP Addr.]:[port]/
    # Example:
ProxyPass / http://localhost:8080/ #Set this to FlexRaid port.
ProxyPassReverse / http://localhost:8080/ #Set this to FlexRaid port.
