Subject R: Bind to localhost without require valid user
Date Mon, 29 Jul 2019 09:49:12 GMT
I don't think we can do ... because, network traffic at a much lower level than the application.
The CouchDB server (frontend) sees GET / PUT / POST coming from a certain ip. At this point,
he asks the database specified in the url for the request and the server itself will verify
the security.
But there is no TCP / IP control at this level. Rather, you could make two servers, the first
one responding only to localhost in AdminParty and the second with the user and password and
in bind on a private / public ip. The second will receive the db in reply from the first.
It could be an idea...

Oggetto: Bind to localhost without require valid user

Is it possible to bind Couchdb to localhost without require valid user and
all other interfaces with require valid user setting. So when application
access through localhost that applications doesn't require username
password to Couchdb and applications access from external interfaces
require username password.
