[Question] Remote access

#1

Hello everyone,
I want to share my Jellyfin Database with my girlfriend. When she is at home she obviously is in a different network than me. I know that you can simply turn on remote access in the admin control panel BUT I want to know if there are any safety measures I should prepare first. I know how to setup the remote access option itself but do i have to keep anything in mind when doing so? What is the safest way to remotely access a server? Thanks in advance!

The best thing to do is to set up a reverse proxy. There are some steps you can follow in our documentation: https://jellyfin.readthedocs.io/en/latest/administrator-docs/reverse-proxy/

That said, I know it may seem intimidating if you’ve never done it before, but we’re willing to help (and there are usually lots of guides online). If you want, you can stop by our Matrix chat room: https://jellyfin.readthedocs.io/en/latest/getting-help/
