Accessing Mycodo running on mobile network
I set up Mycodo that is connected to my router/modem running on mobile/cellular network (no public IP).
I was wondering what will be the best way for me to be able to access the Pi running Mycodo from the internet i.e from my home.
I tried VPN server on the Pi but without public IP, I am not able to connect to the VPN server from outside.
Any guide or input on this is greatly appreciated.
Look at ngrok https://ngrok.com/product
Gives you the equivalent of a secure public HTTPS URL for your localhost server even though you’re behind NAT/firewall. No router rules. Secure. Whitelists. OAuth options. I used it extensively a few years ago for webhook development and was really impressed. There’s an rPi version and free eval.
report back when you get it working ;)
Thank you so much. I will have a look and try to set it up.
Will report back on my progress.
@ga6anz make sure you read the manual as well. There's a complete solution for access from outside your firewall laid out there as well. Kyle was letting people log into his system for a while right after he published the hydroponics project.
I've used PiTunnel before, but it has limited features. You have to go through a procedure to allow HTTPS connections, but I've done it, so it's possible. I don't normally work with cellular networks, so I have a static IP address to work with, which makes networking pretty straightforward.
