Remove Password on webadmin

Hello all,

I am wondering if there is a way to remove the password for the webadmin interface. I want to remove the password completely.
I am going to use a reverse proxy for authentication.

without checking it yet, iirc we didn't think anyone would use no password at all, so there is probably somewhere some checks to avoid empty strings. When it comes to security empty==evil.
If not exposing the webadmin port to public, why not taking something simple then? qwerty or asdf or something ?

The webserver doesn't pass authentication to the client so i just get a 401 error

Guess it'll make more sense to find out why it behaves that way then. Maybe this is something we can influence here.
If I can help finding out, let me know.

If you would like I can setup a VM with a test setup.

I currently use 227i and abyss webserver.
