Accessing DietPi Remotely

Post by midnightwatcher »

Is there a way or are there plans to access DietPi remotely via its local IP address in order to install/uninstall software, update DietPi, reboot, etc? It would be great to access my headless C2 with something like a smartphone to do things that otherwise requires going through the hassle of moving the C2, connecting it up to a monitor, attaching a mouse, keyboard ...

Setup a NOIP account http://www.noip.com/

Install NOIP on the C2 from dietpi-software menu.

Forward port 22 on your router to the internal IP address of the C2 (which must be fixed - do this on your router).

SSH into your C2 from your phone.

Fantastic, installed an SSH client on my Nexus 6P and now I can do what I want. I'll be making a donation in support of DietPi!

Excellent. I couldn't live without SSH now, was like finding gold at the end of a rainbow when I 1st tried it lol.

You can also use a free third party service like https://remote.it We tried to make it simple and fast to add remote access to any device without port forwarding, static IP, etc. See https://remote.it/downloads/ for more info.

Or install a VNC server or even XRDP for Windows remote desktop connection. But yeah, as long as a console is enough, SSH really is the safest and easiest and always pre-installed solution.
