OK. Sounds to me like its probably not using Apache then (the whole not
changing apache config when you installed it). If that is the case,
changing Apache configs won't help. This other app could be running its
own internal webserver, in which case you need to read its documentation
or find some generic way of forcing password authentication before
allowing access to that port.

These are just wild guesses.
