New proxy service to get Kiwi secure "https://" TLS connections

There is a new proxy service run by a third-party (i.e. not us) that will give your Kiwi a secure "https://" TLS connection. See https://github.com/TenkyuChimata/KiwiTLSProxy Manual software download and setup is required using the Kiwi's admin page console tab (i.e. the connect tab proxy settings cannot be used).

We have not tried this ourselves and do not know if it works in all situations (e.g. with 4G connections). And of course we are not responsible for any support issues related to this.

  • Hi John

    As an alternative to using your reverse proxy or this new third party proxy, I have been looking at https://github.com/fatedier/frp The requirement is to set up KiwiSDRs at remote sites using 4G routers/hotspots. I have several Kiwis and several offers of remote sites without internet but would prefer to set up my own reverse proxy server(s). The server for this frp system looks as though it could be a simple RaPi running on a conventional home internet system with a fast fibre/VDSL connection and a public IP (with DDNS) .

    Before I spend/waste too much time playing with this (bearing in mind I have a limited knowledge of Linux and IP set-ups) I would appreciate a reality check!

    Thanks

  • I have recently added FRP to my wsprdaemon service. It isn't widely deployed yet, but the installation and operation at a few alpha sites has been easy and reliable.

    Terry, not sure if you realize this, but the Kiwi reverse proxy does use frp on both sides (frcp client on the Kiwi and frps server on kiwisdr.com). Although it is an older version of frp that I have not bothered upgraded lately because I made custom changes to automate the deployment (and would have to re-validate those changes for a newer version). E.g. look at how clumsy the manual installation is for KiwiTLSProxy versus a few fields and single button push on the Kiwi admin interface.

    Yes, if you want your own TLS you can do it with the more recent versions of frp. That is what KiwiTLSProxy uses. Others have done it with nginx (there was a forum post about this fairly recently).
