Preventing downloading client

Postby juan.cristobo » Thu Sep 13, 2012 7:33 pm

Hi:

Some users have to connect to Servoy from internet, so we have to set a public IP for our Servoy Server. All our applications have security, obviously, so only authenticated users can access to that apps.

But everyone can download the applications, simply putting http://<servoy-server-ip>:8080/ in their browsers. How can I do to prevent this?

Thanks,

a few options here...

If its just internal users, then close the port in the firewall and setup VPN access, so the first authenticate to your VPN network before they get access to the server.

If its external users, you can turn off solution browsing so then the download won't even show a list of solutions, and users have to know the full link to your JNLP file to get to the login page.

If you just want to make it a little harder to find, you could override the index.html page in the ROOT folder and customize it so it doesn't have the client install link. Combined with turning off solution browsing, that makes it more difficult to find the JNLP url (although its still accessible if people know it or figure it out)

Thanks, Scott, I don't know that feature, how can I turn off solution browsing?
