    Is there a way to make it so that BandwidthD web page requires a password to see the results? I have placed a working BWD on my Untangle (Debian) box but can easily bypass the Untangle logon site and type /bandwidth (my alias) and see the bandwidth details.

    Thanks for any advice here.

    Assuming you are using apache2 to serve the web pages, you'll need to configure your apache2 to only allow authenticated requests to /bandwidthd.  You're probably better off looking for instructions from the apache2 folks on how to do that.  Personally, I use a twisted web server for it all, so if that is what you're using, I can walk you through setting up authentication with it.
