Granted I have done this on ONE of my machines.
But the story is not that simple.
Machine (.99 TimPi) I tested the credentials settings.
I edited the settings.js file to what is needed to force log in to the edit screen.
For external reasons I could not log in. I could enter the name but not get to the password field.
Given that, it was rather pointless keeping that setting active, so I remarked out the lines in the settings.js file and all seemed ok.
To the best of my knowledge this was the ONLY machine to which I did it, as this was really the only one which had a chance of constant internet exposure.
Obviously the others can be exposed to the net for updates, etc. Risk assessment: Not worth the hassel.
Since then that machine has gone belly up. Whole other set of problems. But it does arc back to it in some ways.
I updated the OS (RPI) from Jessie to Stretch.
This caused problems for me, as most of mine are still running Jessie. But a couple of new ones are on Stretch.
---------------------- New machine introduced here.
So, to get needed information I went through looking for one with Stretch.
(.94 BeefPi - yeah: THAT one.) is running stretch.
Loading its page, I was (I think) notified about a credential conflict. (What credential conflict?)
Looking in the .node-red directory it has an extra file as Nick explained to me was to do with me successfully activating the secure log in.
But I didn't - on THAT machine.
----------------------- Another machine introduced here.
Also, the file names:
As this one is called BeefPi, it was weird that there were some called "PiFace" (.86) (another of my machines)
Yeah, ok. I have cut/pasted flows from one to the other, as PiFace is/was my main RPI machine.
So I would create flows, edit them, etc and when working export them to the other machine/s.
So I am thinking that because the flows were made on "PiFace" and exported they kept their names?
But the cut/past was done at the WEB level, where I would select the flow/or part and export to the clip board then import from the clip on the new machine.
So that is what I know.
I'm not losing too much sleep on that part, as it is only a file name. It is just the "discrepancy" that has me interested.
1 - Why does a machine on which I have not done the secure log in settings have the file?
2 - The file names..... Just wondering why I'm getting file names from other (one at this point) machine on a different machine.
(Is that clear?)
Thanks in advance.
