I am having a problem with the current setup of reverse proxies. Not really a problem, but a question regarding the setup. The way it is configured right now with Let’s Encrypt certificates is close to perfection and I’d like to congratulate the team for the awesome work done on Quickbox
Some usenet indexers have an option to integrate with newsreaders through the latter’s API key, enabling the option to push NZB’s to the newsreader directly from the indexer’s website. This is done by putting, let’s say, sabnzbd’s api and IP/domain:port in the account’s settings of the indexer.
But I understand that access to [serverdomain]/sabnzbd (or server_ip:sab_port) is protected by the digest authentication setup up in apache even before reaching authentication in sabnzbd and hence before the API access.
So my question is this: is there a way to be able to use that indexer/newsreader integration? Without compromising the security given by the digest log-in that is.
It’s not really that big of an issue since sabnzbd itself has the access required for everything to work, and what I am asking about is just a little extra not worth the effort of implementing it in case it is not already. I’m asking just because I’m curious about this.
Thanks in advance for any input from you guys
