Making the Calibre content server secure
I have a Mac Mini that is running 24/7 on the home WIFI network with the Calibre content server running. I've been able to successfully access books through my laptop and iPad.
A few questions about Calibre security:
By default, is the content server reachable from anywhere in the world? I'm concerned that having Calibre running 24/7 allows hackers an additional access point to the Mac Mini and or the entire WIFI network (9+ devices).
If I would like to make the books available to any device from around the world, how can I make sure my network is secured so that only the books can be accessed and not other files?
Just how secure is Calibre in general?

Use any of the other features your router provides to outside control access when possible. (Like Time of day, only these defined MAC addresses...)
If all your devices are compatible with Calibres scure Password system: use that. (this is usually the big blocker)
