    Hi folks

    I mentioned that my BI4 stats shows increasing anonymous logins every second from the same IP. On that IP I run UI3 in an iFrame to be shown on my smart home visualization. It's a tablet sticked to the wall and nobody is touch in it.

    How can I prevent the increasing logins?

    Thanks.

    Regards
    Martin

    If you can authenticate from the tablet, I would set BI to "require from all connections" under the webserver/advanced. You must have it set to non-lan only now.

    I have my web server setup to not require it on the local LAN. Not sure if that would help at all given that this tablet is on the local LAN.

    The Tablet is on the same local LAN.
    Here are my advanced webserver settings:

    Can I add username and password to the webserver-URL?

    Thanks

    I just tried this and was able to login: http : //192.168.0.19:81/ui3.htm?user=admin&pw=admin

    This works but it does show the password in the url. You could create a new user just for the tablet.


    This is from the BI5 help document (I don't have BI4 installed anymore):
    Code:
    By default, authentication is made using secure (encrypted) methods with a separate login
    page. For some applications you may require “basic” authentication where the browser
    prompts for a login and you may disable this the secure login page. Although less secure,
    basic authentication is more flexible, allowing user names and passwords to also be used in
    the URL such as:
    http://192.168.0.19:81?user=admin&pw=admin
