11.3. Manager API Specifics

The Manager API is enabled by default, but only listens to localhost connections on port 8090.

If required, the listen port can be changed using the tpm option:

manager-rest-api-port=8090

The Manager API can be disabled with the tpm option manager-rest-api=false

Exposing the API to a different network address for remote access, like an internal network, consists in changing the listen address of the API server.

For example, granting access to local 192.168.1.* network would translate to the tpm option:

manager-rest-api-address=192.168.1.0

Warning

Note that exposing the API to a public network can introduce a security breach like brute-force or DDoS attack exposure
