http://[wowza-address]:8086/connectioncounts - can this be unsecured?


Can the HttpProvider: http://[wowza-address]:8086/connectioncounts be unsecured?

I plan on displaying that data in a “available connections” page.



Hello Joel,

Take a look at conf/VHost.xml. Under com.wowza.wms.http.HTTPConnectionCountsXML, change the AuthenticationMethod from “admin-digest” to “none”.

Awesome, I really appreciate it. Thanks Randall!

Please make sure you are using the correct port in your request.

You mentioned that the browser is diplaying this message:

Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to ???

but your URL is:


Which port are you actually using, 8086 or 8081?


Can you please confirm that your problem is fixed and it was a firewall port blocking issue?

The question marks used (???) are confusing and might give a different meaning to your last comment.


Make sure port 8086 is not blocked by a firewall. Also make sure the port is open and properly mapped to the server running Wowza in your network or port forward to the Wowza server.

i donot know what to do

i follow all the steps

  1. Add a username and password to the /conf/admin.password file for access to these pages.

Source code for customized output

You will need the Wowza IDE to build and deploy custom HTTPProviders.

If you want customized output, the source code for the serverinfo HTTPProvider is here.

The source code for connectioncounts is here.

Look at the /conf/VHost.xml /HostPort /Port (8086) /HTTProviders list to see how these are configured in Wowza Server.
