About this app

Remotely access your Raspberry Pi shell from any network without dynamic DNS, portforwarding or VPN.

For more information, visit https://www.dataplicity.com/

* DOES IT WORK BEHIND NAT?
Yes. The client initiates a secure websockets connection to the Dataplicity service. This means that it works most places where there are firewalls, NAT or other network obstructions in place.

* HOW DATAPLICITY WORKS
The Dataplicity client uses a opportunistically-connected secure web connection to provide a communications channel between your device and Dataplicity, and your web browser attaches to the other end of that channel.

* DO I NEED TO ENABLE SSH?
No. Dataplicity does not require SSH, telnet or any other network services to operate. The client is self-contained and does not open any network ports on the device.

* DOES IT OPEN A LOCAL PORT ON THE PI?
No. Client connections are initiated from the device end and do not open any local ports.

* DO I NEED TO INSTALL SOMETHING ON THE PI?
Yes, you need to install the Dataplicity agent on the Pi. You can view the source on GitHub.

* DOES DATAPLICITY AGENT RUN AS ROOT?
No. When you log into the Dataplicity shell you still need to explicitly ask for super user rights to gain full control.

Great and minimalistic! This is what I like about this app. Straight forward and does what it says it does. There are no issues or hassle while connecting and no irritating unnecessary features. Maybe the next feature that can be introduced in a gui but other than this I would safely say this is exactly what you expected from a remote command line experience in order to connect to your pi from anywhere in the world. I wish there were annual offers for the paid version but so far so good. Thx!

Super great app. It's almost too easy to install and comes in superhandy. No need to fool around with ssh and port forwarding. Just have your rpi accessable to you from anywhere in the world within 3 minutes. Would absolutely recommend.
