Following-up on this.... Although my configuration meets what Ray describes, the only page that is in fact protected is the home page. All the special URLs work without password, and I can actually play without authentication via the most recent, or custom playlists, entrances, using any browser.

Is the single location of the .password file really sufficient, or does it have to be in each subfolder for the configured root?

I have a .password file and I absolutely can't see anything without
authenticating first. If you can, then maybe you have the file in the
wrong place or there is a bug in your version. FYI, my .password
file is in the "root" defined in gnump3d.conf and I'm running v2.8.

How do I password-protect the special URLs, such as /prefs, /stats, etc?

I guess what I am after is some global lock-out mechanism. I understand the .password file, but that still allows to see quite a lot of details, including the complete music collection (go Custom Playlists). Granted it won't play to unauthenticated users, but ideally the unauthorized visitor would see nothing at all, right?

Any advice gratefully accepted,
