Remote Access

#1 Post by hans65 » 16 Apr 2018, 12:13

Hi to all

I have a FritzBox 7390 and would like to have remote access to my sonoff switch. I've configured everything in my FritzBox but unfortunately remote access is not working.
I've also install a webcam and this is perfect working. Is it not possible for sonoff devices?

Thanks

Hans

Hi, I have exactly the same problem also. I have a Sonoff, working fine in local, but as soon as I try to access (or send commands) remotely the access is blocked (or refused). I've defined the Sonoff exactly the same way as some cameras I have on the same network, which are working fine, but not the Sonoff (using the Espeasy mega software version 05/24/2018).
I'm suspecting the software, for some reasons is not answering the good answer.

Do you use cloud HQTT broker or only http requests?

Default settings block external traffic.
See "Client IP filtering" on the config tab.

I don't have this function "Client IP filtering" on my installed firmware. I'm using v2.0-20180221

Those Fritzboxes support creating a VPN to home, don't they?
My Fritzbox is one generation newer, but I think it was introduced in FritzOS 6.50.
Then you can add VPN functionality to your mobile and you don't have to go through the hassle (and danger) of opening ports to the ESP unit from the internet.

I guess that's what you're missing here. Port forwards to the ESP node. But I strongly advice you not to open ports to the ESP unit, since you will allow anyone to apply settings and do all kind of stuff on your node.

I am also in process of looking for a cloud solution to provide a service for the for the Meek/ESPEasy users.

I want to build/hire a VPS/VPN server with a Linux distribution on it and we could equip it with cloud MQTT?, Node-Red?, MQTT websocket?, … all open for suggestions.
I was not able to find a solution that was able to coop with multiple users.

Goal: I want a server that once registered, you will get a link to your own dashboard. The MQTT server must have a "MQTT discovery" function and a beautiful, adaptable web interface :D . So once you put your credentials in ESPEasy, your dashboard will be automatically updated with the connected ESPEasy devices.

Due to my other ongoing project, time is a limiting factor for me. But we could consider to open a new topic on this matter, offcourse, if there is animo for a solution like this (I bet it does 8-) ).
I am willing to hire a VPS/VPN and give access to whomever if willing to contribute to this project.

Thank you for your thoughts.
