Remote access is a key factor in any successful IoT solution deployed remotely. This article explains the ideas and best solutions behind the need to control the IoT and these Raspberry Pis or IoT devices using the RemoteIoT remote management platform. Businesses can use SSH, VNC, remote shell commands, port forwarding, and other technologies to connect devices behind a router.
Usually, since these Raspberry Pi or IoT devices run the Linux operating system, there are many ways to access them remotely through the internet, such as:
RDP connections, etc.
Establishing any of these can be difficult when it comes to accessing IoT devices remotely over the internet. The RemoteIoT platform provides businesses with the remote access tools to access their IoT devices from anywhere in the world, even if those Raspberry Pis or IoT devices are behind a corporate firewall that doesn’t. not allow ssh or VNC connections. Users can follow these 3 simple steps.
Step 1: create a RemoteIoT account
Before logging into the Raspberry Pi, please open the RemoteIoT website in the browser and register a new account. The step only takes a minute and is completely free.
Step 2: Install the RemoteIoT service
Open the terminal of these Raspberry Pis or IoT devices or use ssh on the local network to access these devices and install the RemoteIoT service.
Step 3: Connect these Raspberry Pi
Now open the RemoteIoT portal in a browser and login to the dashboard. Users should now see their Raspberry Pi in the device list.
Click on “Connect Port” and select the SSH or VNC port. The user will get a hostname (like proxy8.remoteiot.com) and port (like 10008). Now copy the hostname and port to the ssh or vnc client and connect to the Raspberry Pi, the user will connect to their device as if the device is on the local network.
RemoteIoT provides businesses with a series of fixed and customizable plans, with free tier options and limited functionality to experience the platform. The RemoteIoT platform allows businesses to focus on their core expertise, easily deploy devices at scale, and effectively reduce costs.
