Securing Remote NetLinx Studio Login

Greetings,

Is there a way to password protect a remote login to a Netlinx master controller via NetLinx Studio? Without a password it would seem that anyone who knew the IP address of the system could get in via port 1319 with Netlinx Studio.

Thank you!

    That was one of the additions with the new v. 3 firmware. I haven't gone as far as trying to load it, since I don't currently have any of the new Duet masters yet. Whicgh raises the question I have - is there a version of the v.3 that doesn't have Duet that will load on old masters?

    With the v3 master firmware, you can set up a username/password protection for the "ICSP environment". This means, every software, application and master/panel has to use the user/pass. Additionally, you can encrypt the ICSP data.

    See the latest master manuals how to setup.


    AFAIK there would not be a v3 "light" version for the older masters. Maybe parts of the security functionality are Java-based, and the java/Duet environment needs more memory as available on the older masters.
