Can I connect remotely with the EFC-02 controller using the internet?
This connection is possible, but only for users who have a fixed external IP address.
Access via the Internet is not possible for services such as Neostrada, where the external IP address changes dynamically.
In the case of a permanent external IP address, first appropriate redirections must be made to the router.
1. When the external IP address is free, you can use directly the option of redirecting the internal IP address under which the controller is seen in the LAN to an external IP address. You can do it in two ways:
- using the "Network settings" tab, you must manually set the controller's IP address and other parameters in the local network. Then, this address should be redirected to the external address we have.
- Another way is to configure the router so that the controller with the specified MAC address receives the same address in the LAN after DHCP. Then, this address should be redirected to the external address we have.
2. When the external IP address is already taken, use the port forwarding function.
Controller works by default on the port of 2013.
If you try to connect to the EFC-02 controller via the Internet when logging in to the application, select the option of remote access and enter the necessary data: external IP address under which the controller is viewed and the port number. If you work on the default port, enter 2013.
