Linux dvr server binding interface

Post by dorianny » Thu Jul 11, 2019 3:44 pm

The dvr daemon binds to 0.0.0.0 which means it listens on all network interfaces and ip adresses configured in the system.
Is there a hdhomerun.conf parameter to specify binding to a specific network interface, such as eth0.1 or a specific ip address such as 192.168.10.50

There isn't. Are you encountering an issue because of that? The latest DVR version should properly handle multi-homed devices and find the HDHomeRun on any interface.

It works fine but it is a security concern when one of those interfaces is on the DMZ

You have a firewall running to only allow access to the specific services you want exposed to the internet, right?

Of course there is a firewall but they are not foolproof. The security rule of thumb is to not have services running in interfaces they don't need to be on. This is really a simple code change for your developers, one I hope you will implement
