Motion - Config Option Control Authentication


  • Type: String
  • Range / Valid values: Max 4096 characters
  • Default: Not defined
  • Group: Obsolete

To protect HTTP Control by username and password, use this option for HTTP 1.1 Basic authentication. The string is specified as username:password. Do not specify this option for no authentication. This option must be placed in motion.conf and not in a thread config file.

This option has been replaced by webcontrol_authentication

By setting this to on, the control using http (browser) can only be accessed using login and password ( following the Basic Authentication defined in HTTP RFC )
