What is the best solution? (This for a neophyte)
Ok, you have easily installed your Letsencrypt certificates with the node-red-contrib-acme-client node, performed port forwarding in your router. External access is ok via https.
But, you should still add a control with credentials and OTP if possible, otherwise access is immediate to the Dashboard.
The side-effect is that now I also have to enter my credentials when I'm locally at home.
So it's fine from the outside, but boring when I'm at home.
Would it be possible to have the best of both worlds?
Outside the house = identification
Inside the house = no identification
Is there a parameter in NR that would say,
if we come from the internal network (example 192.168.x.y) not to ask for identification?
Or could NR be reached via 2 URLs, one via http and the other via https ?
I can't talk about Trafeak, Juniper, or Netscaler and other reverse proxies, dockers which are not for a "normal" user.
While understanding that it's more professional.
Ideas, arguments, solutions are welcome.
I also want to say that I read the various posts on this forum and articles in Github but it is still very complex for a non-specialist.
