Thanks for the note, it's a really important point. I'm not interested in setting up a pirate site. (I'm a musician/composer and I have copyright stuff being pirated as we speak). I'm only into having personal access, when I need it, and allowing others to access in situations where I need/want someone to look at or get something from my library (very few others, close associates/family). I am simply trying to implement something that Calibre presents to me as a feature, with a tab and menu item all its own. If no one wants anyone to use it, what's the point? I'm trying to connect my devices, as stated by Calibre, period.
Yes, I will definitely be using a password, once I get it working.
