Hello all.

I have a question about the user accounts. Or lack off

I use HFS 2,3. I forwarded port 8080 to my pc in my router. I don't have a domain name yet, but I can reach my HFS through my external wan ip address.
Everyone can see the "homepage"of HFS. So everyone sees the files and can download them.
I haven't even made a user account.
Is this normal behaviour from  HFS ? So why bother even making user accounts ?

this behavior is completely normal, everything is accessible as long as no protection policy is in place,

unless you really want to share sensitive data with the rest of the world, it is unconscious to open an external port without having first set up a minimum of security

start by creating a personal user account and protecting each element of the VFS tree structure,

depending on the listening port used or all of them, you can test the web content using the address in the browser on the pc, or its ip address on the local network,

to connect to the internet address, it is necessary to use another provider

these links do not reflect all the possibilities and latest version of hfs, but it can help to start your server

Ah ok.  It's not that i have sensitive data, but i have this data on my own home Windows server.
I have a limited data usage per month. I just don't want everyone to "pull"data of my server.

So i want to restrict to known persons, friends etc.
So what i want is that every user (no matter who it is) HAS to login. So users may only see the home hfs page after they have logged in. Is this possible ?

So what i want is that every user (no matter who it is) HAS to login.
Virtual File System
access tab, put checkbox in 'can change password' (a user-group)
Verify that a padlock icon shows at /
Save virtual file system (saves your changes)

After that, go to menu/other/user, and add some users to the group 'can change password' to allow access
