Password for BWT pages

Answered Question
Jun 3rd, 2010

Why is there no authentication on the BWT pages?  Isn't that a huge security hole?

I have this problem too.

I believe this doc will help you lock down the BWT side of the server. You may want to look for an updated version since this is for 6.1/4.1 installs.

Good luck

In SUSE navigate to the vsmc.conf file located here: /usr/BWhttp/conf/http.d/

Just add this to the end

        AuthName "Cisco Media Server BWT Pages"

        AuthType Basic

        AuthUserFile /usr/BWhttpd/etc/.htpasswd

        Require valid-user

Using command line you can type:

vi /usr/BWhttp/conf/http.d/vsmc.conf

#

# pressing "i" puts you into "insert mode"

#

i

#

# Add the directory at the end

#

        AuthName "Cisco Media Server BWT Pages"

        AuthType Basic

        AuthUserFile /usr/BWhttpd/etc/.htpasswd

        Require valid-user

#

# press esc then ":wq" and hit enter.

#

:wq
