If I use port forwarding and login from the a web browser or the iOS app, is the login password encrypted? Is https used for security or is port forwarding just exposing the regular http/webui to the internet? My initial impression is that I should not use port forwarding and just use a secure VPN to connect to the local lan remotely instead. I have also found instructions on reverse proxy ( http://rayshobby.net/mediawiki/index.php?title=Secure_Remote_Access ) but this seems to only support the PI or Beagle versions of Open Sprinkler, not the commercial version.

I’ve decided to keep it to the local LAN only and use the OpenSprinkler plug-in for Indigo as the primary control point. Since Indigo has secure remote access, that does everything I need in one place. Author Posts Viewing 3 posts - 1 through 3 (of 3 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
