    Rather than install NodeJS and NPM, then serve, I would strongly recommend installing SSH server and client. “serve” may, and probably do have security issues.

    SSH can be used safely remotely, and locally.

    Please see the following sites:

    https://www.nixtutor.com/linux/installing-and-configuring-an-ssh-server/ (Many other sites give similar instructions)
    https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-configure-ssh-key-based-authentication-on-a-linux-server

    To secure ssh even more:

    and others.
