IPv6

Suggestion 1:

Fibaro finder should display the IPv6-addresses the box uses. I had to use an internet snooper to find the address.

 

Suggestion 2:

The box should have an option to require a domain name e.g. "whatever.mydomain.com" to access the box. Access from remote users (not from 192.168.x.x) that do not use the domain name should ger an error 403. This increases the security and prevents script kiddies thet are scanning all ip-addresses to access the box.

So, you mean DDNS?

  • Can be DDNS
  • Can be a registered domainname when you have a public fixed IP

 

 

@B Damm please explain more in detail.

    access via WattEver.mydomain.com should be allowed

    access via 79.136.1.241 would result in error 403

    This would require either a fixed ip address from my ISP or a DynDns solution if the address is not fixed.

    OK, i get it. You want to have DDNS. I think, that domain name would just overpriced port forward.

    Registered domain name is per year payment and it requires access from outside to unit. Not much secure for the system, i think.

     

    DDNS could be sollution, with proper client and server. But i still have feeling, there is still something fishy regarding security.

    I think it's beter to use or the Fibaro Cloud access or a VPN to your home

    Totally agree with you. Fibaro ID should be enough to control home full of Z-Wave devices in Fibaro system. VPN if you have fixed public IP adress.

     

    But there is something on for memorizing name than IP. But for that there is local DNS server od mDNS. That means possibility to have something like this: fibaro.myhome.local or fibaro.local.

     

    And as i wrote, i think there is something fishy about security for DDNS.
