Nice idea; that would certainly do what I want.

Hm, and is that sufficient that end users *only* see http://my.ser.ver/status 
(or whatever your choice is) URLs, and also that http://my.ser.ver/icingaweb2 
is not contactable?

Basically, I'm aiming for two things together here:

1. A URL of my choosing which users need to access to view Icingaweb2

2. Blocking random requests from the Internet for /icingaweb2 to turn away 
pestering script-kiddies.

Sounds fair enough.



Why is "dylexia" so difficult to spell, and why can I never remember "aphasia" 
when I want to?
