OS X Server and Devonthink Web/Internet Access

Setting up web/internet access using with Devonthink via the manual uses . To make this more secure is there any benefit or conflicts on doing this through the OSX Server App which has VPN :question:


Mac Power Users recently did a whole podcast devoted to OSX Server and they mentioned the VPN:

This doesn’t answer your question completely but it may help.

When you connect to your VPN manually and then browse to the DTPO Webserver through your internal IP, your data will be secured by your VPN tunnel.

However, one of the main reasons for me to use this feature, would be to access the databases from computers which are restricted by their admins, preventing me from installing own software or using custom VPN.
Therefor I would really like to see DEVONtechnologies implementing https support for this webserver (and the ability to use a custom certificate).
Anyone know if this is on their ToDo-list?

@ChiellieNL - Its been a while since I looked at this and because I would be running a remote PC (No DTP App) to iMac I found ‘TeamViewer’ to offer the best solution. Security wise "Encryption is based on 2048bit RSA private/public key exchange and 256 Bit AES session encoding."http://www.teamviewer.com/en/help/14-How-secure-is-TeamViewer.aspx

The https would be a great feature if added on the ToDo-List. DT look to have updated the web server some time ago http://blog.devontechnologies.com/2012/09/new-web-interface-for-devonthink-public-beta-1/ and

@DanDT - thanks for the OSX Server link.

Also notice there is a https function when sharing DTP database using Webdav in DTP-Preferences-Server and selecting https;
