Configurator - Login attempt or request with invalid authentication

I have noticed that when I click the configurator icon, I got the notification:

Login attempt or request with invalid authentication from localhost ( (Python-urllib/3.8)

I can disable the message, but as soon as I click the configurator button, I get directly a new notification.
It doesn’t give directly problem, since I can use configuration embedded in HA. So it is more of an annoying issue.

I have read the similar thread of the issue, but can’t solve it, or maybe don’t understand how to solve it.
I have tried to add below code in configuration.yaml. Something that I read in other threads could help.

  use_x_forwarded_for: true

But I didn’t make any difference. So I don’t know what to do to get rid of the notification.



This happens from any client (Mac Safari, iOS) periodically. It has been happening for a years worth of HA releases, up to and including the very latest. Many others have this issue and it seems to remain unsolved.

Still happening

Never happend to me. So, it has to do something with your config. Do you use reverse proxy? Or NC? Or VPN?

I you only a VPN. No reverse proxy, no NC.

reverse proxy - no
NC - no
VPN - no

And given the endless torrent of people with the same issue, its not just ‘my config’ :slight_smile:

What add-ons do you use? If I may ask?
And are you using ssl?
