I can understand authenticating my account when I have to restart the server (“core”), which frankly happens entirely too often, but I do not understand why I have to login to my account on the client side to use the server (“core”) which is on my local network. ANYONE who has properly attached to my local network should be able to attach to the running server (“core”) without the need for credentials to use the client side software. This morning, I had to run around the house and re-authenticate my devices which is a very frustrating waste of my time. And that was possibly the fifth time I have had to do that since our first shelter-in-place order in March.
