The reason for this is that BubbleUPnP Server when accessed behind a reverse proxy, sees the connection originating from the proxy, which is local, thus no credentials popup. Admittedly, there could be a setting in BubbleUPnP Server that forces credentials popup even on the LAN.
So, you need to add credentials managed by the reverse proxy. For example a .htpasswd managing access to /some-path should work.
I now had the time to play a bit with some http auth to ensure an extra layer of security.
Basically it works (thru the web), however, when trying to access the Server thru the Android app, it always tells me that the connection itself could be established but auth has failed.
I'm sure that this is because of the additional "credential-request", but how to solve that so that the Android app can connect to the server in such case thru the internet.
Any hints? Many thanks.
