If this check box is selected, then the files on the built-in server running on the specified
port are accessible from another computer.

the following authorization pop-up window is displayed:
To access the requested page, click Copy authorization URL to clipboard
and paste the generated token in the address bar of the browser.

To suppress displaying the authorization pop-up window, select the Allow unsigned requests check box.
