How to control remote computers in the Wiki

Thanks, but that page doesn't explain how to prevent remote control attempt. How do I do it?

If you set a password, only those with the password can manage boinc on those puters remotely. Item #2 on the linked page

You also need to explicitly allow systems to remote control, by adding their IP addresses to the file remote_hosts.cfg.

If the IP isn't listed in that file, even if the "attacking" machine knows the password, it'll be denied access.
