If you want use your raspberry pi out of your home (from your smartphone or your laptop) or far from your private wifi network, you need to follow this guide.
If you’ve ever tried to set up your Raspberry Pi as an Internet of Things device, you’ll know that unless you jump through some massive hoops, you’re stuck serving web pages and data on your local network. It can be a challenge to access your Raspberry Pi from outside your home or local network.
Getting information from your Raspberry Pi on your phone, or while you’re at work or school . . . it’s nearly impossible. There are lots of ways to work your way out to the internet. They’re often painful: ISP’s block ports, you need to set up port forwarding, you might violate your terms of service with your ISP, and you might need to customize your router.
The steps are very easy:
- Assign a STATIC IP on your Raspberry PI
- Assign a DNS to your static IP with no-ip or similar
- Open the doors on your router (Port Forwarding)
