Re: using a proxy server to access blue iris webservice

Note that my nginx vm is set to get its own unique ip address rather than share its host IP. I then add that proxy server to my port-forwarding settings in my router. location / { proxy_pass http://192.168.1.233:81; (note 233 is my BI) } First I configured without SSL certs having my proxy accept in...

Re: using a proxy server to access blue iris webservice

killer, I see you are using nginx too.

I didn't mess with the BI web settings at all. Just leave them alone with the standard settings on port 81.

Then set up nginx to proxy-pass to the BI machine and port.

Re: using a proxy server to access blue iris webservice

I use a proxy but not the one you are using so I can't help.

My Nginx on Linux proxy (running as a VM on the BI machine) works perfectly and has the ability to automatically update its Let's Encrypt signed certificates.

Sorry you are having trouble but the base case of using a proxy server is sound.

Re: Securing BI

I am reading that port forwarding is frowned upon. Port forwarding is required by even the most secure solutions including VPN. The real question that you MUST inquire about is... what content is being forwarded to what devices. Port forwarding anything to cameras is frowned upon. Port forwarding V...

Re: Securing BI

Oh, and to one of your questions... The IOS and Android apps use the same ports as the standard web browser so to get one you get all.

Re: Securing BI

There is a LOT of misinformation and conflation of various topics when discussing this. The biggest error in thinking about this is the two scenarios A) exposing your cameras to the internet vs B) exposing BI to the internet. It is very much true that there have been multiple instances of cameras be...

Ah, I see something in the help file. I use Timeline View rather than Clip View and I am frankly not sure about Clip View and its limitations since I never use that. ============== The Clip Viewer The clip viewer allows you to play the clip, if it is a movie, either frame by frame, or full-speed.

Re: Improved Viewer?

Hmm, my skip buttons seem to work just fine. They just forward or reverse to the next event in the timeline. Where in the help file does it say they are limited?

I just checked right now and they work fine.

Re: Do I need to add a video card?

But if it never even approaches 80% CPU or Memory why am I concerned about the hardware? This is an honest question. I don't understand. Electrical power usage and headroom would be the only near term concerns and expandability as a longer term consideration. Some forum members (here some but more ...
