Remote Access

By default, access is possible in the local network without username/password. External access (for example through Symcon Connect) is completely disabled. To allow external access or password protection in the local network, remote access can be activated. A secure password (at least eight characters with special characters) should be assigned. Once remote access has been enabled, the system can be accessed through the Invalid Link: Management Console by entering the username (license username) and password.

If too many password errors occur, password validation will be slowed down initially and completely disabled later on.

To access IP-Symcon remotely from another machine you will need the Invalid Link: Management Console. As soon as the Invalid Link: Management Console is launched, the Connection Wizard will be displayed, which automatically finds all IP-Symcon servers in their local networks. After selecting the server, the user name and password must be entered in order to establish a connection.

For access from outside the local network the Invalid Link: Connect Control can be used with an active subscription. Alternatively, if sufficient network knowledge is available, this can be achieved by configuring a port forwarding in the router.

Activating / deactivating remote access

In order to activate remote access, a password must be assigned. If remote access is deactivated again, the remote access password must simply be left "empty" and saved.

SymOS (SymBox)
Windows (desktop / server)
MacOS
Linux (Ubuntu)
Raspberry Pi

As of version 4.4, remote access can also be activated within a demo license. When accessing the demo version via IPSStudio or Mediola, the user name must be left blank and only the password entered.

SymOS

Via the web interface, a password can be set via "Settings -> Remote Access".

Activate remote access

Windows

Through the tray application a dialog can be opened via "Right-Click -> Information". At the bottom of the dialog, an item "Remote Access" can be found. There, the password can be set.

Activate remote access

MacOS

Through the tray application a dialog can be opened via "Click -> Information". At the bottom of the dialog, an item "Remote Access" can be found. There, the password can be set.

Linux

The license must be set up correctly in the console. The following command must then be executed:

sudo nano /root/.symcon

There should be several entries. The following must be inserted in a new line. (Do not leave empty lines!)

Password=c3ltY29u

Then save and exit. The Service must be restarted.
The password c3ltY29u is "symcon" encoded in Base64. The password must be Base64 encoded. This tool can be used for this purpose: http://www.base64encode.org/
