The Wifi Guru has builtin security by assigning the username and password plus you can use a NON-Default port which will keep it secure on the Internet. Someone would have to know the following to attach your Wifi Cyber Q 1.External IP address, 2. Port Number, 3.Username, 4.Password. Someone could not even sit on your LAN and use Packet Sniffing because the Username and Password is encrypted in the HTTP Header.
Let me know if this info helps.
Actually, no, I don't want ad hoc mode. I run the CyberQ in infrastructure mode and it is connected to my home wireless network when I am home or to a Linksys Wifi router in my trailer at comps, so ad hoc mode won't work. What I would like to do is have my iPhone connected to either my home network or my comp network and be able to access the CyberQ over that network.
I understand the security and port usage, but the biggest issue is at comps where I don't have internet access and really don't want to pay for a Mifi or similar just for the CyberQ. At home I am already doing port forwarding for my home office video conferencing system and really don't want to mess with trying to get a second device working when I don't need access to the CyberQ from the internet.
