Package Description

Description

Foundry VTT module for converting the dynamic IP addresses Foundry VTT shows as invitation links to static URLs you can distribute to your players.

The generated links will continue to work even if your IP address changes! No more need to resend links every few weeks, you can bookmark a URL (which helpfully starts with "foundryredirect.com" so you wont forget what it is) and never worry about it again.

After install, Foundry Redirect will generate a URL for your world, and display it in the Invitation Links window.

Native Foundry VTT links will still be shown if you scroll, just in case you need them!

Customizing Your Link

By default, Foundry Redirect will generate a link which looks like https://foundryredirect.com/(a random ID). For example https://foundryredirect.com/abcd1234-98gh-11zz-a976-611b200d4b84 This link will remain the same as your IP address changes, but is still unwieldy and difficult to memorize.

Instead of using the default random ID, you may customize it to something more unique to your world! From the Invitation Links window, click the "Customize" link to open the customization window. Then you can edit the link, "Test Address" to see if it is available, and Submit when you are happy with it

Warning: After customizing your link, your previous link will no longer work.

Security Considerations

This module works by maintaining a database of Foundry IP addresses and the links which redirect to them, on AWS. Only the developer has access to the database.

However, if you are uncomfortable the IP of your Foundry instance existing on a database outside of your control, the developer recommends against the use of this module.
