we are using the open source otel collector from where we forward data to signoz. now we want to connect our angular application to it too. Maybe not fully the right group but sure many smart people with experience in this area; how do you expose the collector to the internet; unauthenticated?

Do you have a specific use case that requires exposing the collector unauthenticated? or you are just testing out stuff?

Thanks for the resources.
I prefer to not expose the collector unauthencited but dont have a good alternatnive neither. If we add the telemetry to the angular app that needs to push it somewhere too?
