Security of public hub

I setup hamvoip and forwarded some ports to allow access to supermon. I wonder now if that’s a good idea or not. I only saw one weird thing so far, but wonder about how secure this would be. I’ll keep searching here, but now wondering if I should just rent a VM for $5 a month instead of have open ports on my network. I could control the node without allowing supermon connection I guess. - - [06/Jun/2021:18:34:17 -0400] “GET / HTTP/1.0” 200 135

this resolves to, so not sure who was looking.

The ports are only open to the ip address of your pi. If they hack the node and crash it, you can build a new one, not that big of a deal I’d be more worried about the creators at hamvoip hacking you than I would just some random one. There’s no telling what kind of spyware they have in that system, they won’t release their source code for some reason. I’m pretty sure they have spyware in there.

I would not port forward for my node. Supermon does not require port-forwarding if it is only accessed from LAN.
