This FAQ will explain several different ways on how you can securely add your Brainboxes ED device to your network.

Change the default port of the webserver

The default port number is 80. If you change it then it would make users have to use a specific port that YOU set to access the device. So if you set the port to 8888, then the webpage would be xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:8888
