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

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
