Protect access to local web server from unauthorized access (port 80)
Posted on 2014-02-07
I have a local web server running on my computer and would like to be able to access it from outside by forwarding port 80.
This works, but now everybody can access it. Is there a why to protect access to the local web server from unauthorized access? I read about .htaccess and .htpassword but that level of protection doesn't meet my standards.
Is there a better / more reliable method available?
