Stop requesting credentials on remote port 5000 connections

Prior to version 18.6, the Backup Manager supported LAN connections to port 5000 on other devices to view that device's Backup Manager, provided that the device's Backup credentials were entered. Since 18.6, users are still challenged for credentials despite the fact that, even if they enter the correct credentials, the user is then told they can no longer connect for security purposes.

 

Removing this challenge altogether would be a huge quality of life improvement, and can also help reduce security concerns where users may believe that an unauthorised remote connection is possible this way.
