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 IoT and these Raspberry Pis or IoT Devices using the remote management platform RemoteIoT. Companies 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 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 challenging when it comes to accessing the IoT devices remotely through the internet. The RemoteIoT platform offer companies the Remote Access Tools to access their IoT devices from anywhere in the world even if these Raspberry Pis or IoT Devices are behind a corporate firewall which does not allow ssh or VNC connections. Users may follow these 3 simple steps.
Step 1: Create a RemoteIoT account
Before connecting to the Raspberry Pi, please open the RemoteIoT website in browser and register a new account. The step takes only one minute and is completely free.
Setp 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.
Setp 3: Connect these Raspberry Pi’s
Now, open the RemoteIoT portal in a browser and log in to the dashboard. Users should now see their Raspberry Pi in the device list.
Click “Connect Port” and select the SSH or VNC port. The user will get a host name (such as proxy8.remoteiot.com) and a port (such as 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 companies with a series of fixed and customizable plans, with free tier options, and limited functionality for experimenting with the platform. The RemoteIoT platform enables companies to focus on their core expertise, easily deploy devices on a large scale, and effectively reduce costs.
