SECURE ACCESS TO PLEX CONSOLE

mvlucchimvlucchi Members Posts: 9
Hi, guys,
I installed via apt-get Plex Server in Ubuntu Server.

If I access the URL "http://192.168.1.100:32400/web/index.html # / dashboard" from other PC in subnet, I see the dashboard without authentication required.
Is there any way to force login and password for access to the dashboard?

Many thanks

    Thanks for your fast reply.

    I went to the url:
    http://192.168.1.100:32400/web/index.html #! / settings
    but I can not find "require authentication on local network"

    I see only user text box for username and text box for password
    and two buttons.

    Greetings

    Upgrade.


    Hi,
    I upgrade to latest version with following command:

    sudo nano /etc/apt/sources.list
    then I add "deb http://www.plexapp.com/repo lucid main" to the file
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install plexmediaserver

    ubuntu install the latest version ( see second image attached ), but I have not solved the problem ( see first image attached ).

    Do you have other ideas ?

    I add third Image after upgrade below.
    Is there any way to force login/password from command line ?

    Many thanks

    you need to actually log into myPlex, you wont get far using it to provide security without logging in.

    Thank you,
    now I understand.
    I did not think to secure access to the dashboard from the same subnet the server had to publish to myplex.

    Many thanks.
