Expose our local AirTime instance to director.border.radio.it with an HTTP basic auth in front of it for security reasons.
The problem of the Border Radio regia is that is a super-legacy computer under a NAT and with very broken repositories with impossibility to use apt to install autossh or setup whatever thing. So, actually I've setup an infinite-loop acting like autossh, to keep an SSH tunnel from Border Radio Regia to Reyboz server. The script runs from a screen session.
We have setup this only thanks to Antonio from Comala that was receiving my instructions while he was in the Border Radio room while I was blocked because of COVID-19. That's why this solution works but it's so shitty. Do not fight about this please.
while :; do date; ssh firstname.lastname@example.org -p 8080 -N -o ExitOnForwardFailure=yes -o "ServerAliveInterval 45" -o "ServerAliveCountMax 1" -R 2223:localhost:80 -R 8083:localhost:80; sleep 5; done
In Reyboz server:

I've setup a basic HTTP Auth for security reasons, because as already noted, the Border Radio Regia node is a super-legacy computer with Ubuntu 12.10 without I think any security patch.
Actually the user is border-director and the password was shared only to Mariangela C.
To change the password again:
$ htpasswd -c /etc/apache2/secrets/border-director.passwd border-director
The certificate was deployed with Let's Encrypt:
certbot certonly --webroot --webroot-path=/home/www-data/border-radio.it/director/ -d director.border-radio.it
