    Secure remote access to fr24feed possible?

    As the server control web access sits on port 8754 along with the server settings that can be changed to any command (scary).
    Is there a way to secure this web controller port so one can safely access it outside of the LAN?

    You have forwarded a port to it so that you can access it from outside?

    Took a bit of fiddling around as the paths are all coded as absolute, but if you're running Apache on the same LAN this Apache config section will allow you to require a password to access the feed externally at /fr/:

    Code:
    ProxyPass /fr/ http://hostname/ip-of-fr24feed:8754/
    ProxyPass /flights.json http://hostname/ip-of-fr24feed:8754/flights.json
    ProxyPass /config.json http://hostname/ip-of-fr24feed:8754/config.json
    ProxyPass /monitor.json http://hostname/ip-of-fr24feed:8754/monitor.json
    ProxyPass /restart.bin http://hostname/ip-of-fr24feed:8754/restart.bin
    ProxyPass /shutdown.bin http://hostname/ip-of-fr24feed:8754/shutdown.bin
    <Location /fr>
      AuthType Basic
      AuthName Frfeed24
      AuthUserFile /etc/apache2/your-passwdfile
      Require valid-user
      ProxyPassReverse /
      ProxyHTMLEnable On
      ProxyHTMLURLMap / /fr/
      RequestHeader unset Accept-Encoding
    </Location>
    You'll need to set up the passwd file, enable apache modules (proxy.conf, proxy_html.conf, proxy_html.load, proxy_http.load, proxy.load) and it assumes none of the Fr24feed page names conflict with your existing site (flights.json, config.json, moitor.json, restart.bin, shutdown.bin).

    I'm hoping for a lighter solution

    ssh shell via a port forward will do
