Security and Configuration


To use the Red5 Pro Server API, you must set a security access Token in the file {red5pro_home}\webapps\api\WEB-INF\red5-web.properties. The security.accessToken= is blank by default, which disables API access.

With the CORE SECURITY PROVIDER SETTINGS set to true, a token is required for use with any of the API REST calls.

Additional security is set in {red5pro_home}\webapps\api\WEB-INF\security\hosts.txt. This is set to localhost with the Red5 Pro Server distribution. You can add specific IP addresses, one per line, to allow access.

For example:

localhost
98.76.54.32
~

Alternatively, you can allow access from all IPs with a * entry:

localhost
*
~

Note: You will need to restart Red5 Pro if you modify either or both of the above files.
