How to secure server with password


We are looking to integrate OCS inventory in our network but ther is one important requirement we need in order to go with it. The server has to be protected with a password.

Now i can see when i use the agent installer that there is an optional password in the wizard on the page where you enter the server's address. " Server Credentials (optional)..."

I looked everywhere in the server web UI for this parameter and i can't find it anywhere. I also looked on Google and here ( i used keywords like "password" and "server credentials" but i cannot find my answer.

I just need a simple nuge in the right direction. (ex : the .conf i need to edit or the section in the UI that manages this.) I will figure out the rest.

Thank you.

It simple use the htpasswd feature from apache.

You need to add the configuration in ocsinventory-server.conf.

Malheureusement, je n'ai trouvé aucune instruction officielle. Mais c'est simplement une authentification Apache qui est décrite partout.
Je suis désolé .. J'aimerais aussi une meilleure documentation

peut-être que cela aide
