How do I access my Pi from an externel network to install modules and change config.js?
I would like to install modules and change the config file from my office or when I’m at my parents house.
Can this be done by “Remote Desktop Connection” that is part of my Windows Enterprice edition? I already can access my Pi this way from within my network (so at home). But I also like to use it when I’m outside of the home network.
I mention Remote Desktop because I’m more of a desktop user then a commandline writer. I’m still learning :smiling_face_with_open_mouth_cold_sweat:
Is this just a matter of port forwarding and use a No-IP.com account or is it more complicated? And then the biggest concern: is it a save methode???
@MWel1977 u can put TeamViewer on the PI, and then connect to it remotely
I didn’t know that Teamviewer could run on a Pi!?!?
I’ll look into it!
Thanks for the heads-up!

@MWel1977 Or make use of builtin VNC with a VPN, what also can run on the Pi. But Teamviewer would be the most simple to use.
With TeamViewer you don’t have to open a port
@Sean that dataplicity is only commandline right?
And they also have an app for my smartphone (Android) I see.
Does that mean I can control my Pi (via commandline) from any place in the world?
Without port forwarding? Or does this require port forwarding?
It has web interface (and web terminal shell also).
You don’t need to make port forwarding. dataplicity makes some tunneling through it’s service between your RPI and dataplicity server. You can connect to your RPI through dataplicity server with dedicated static domain name - wormhole (looks some funny however), then can control your RPI(or any other linux based machine) remotely. It will have same domain name even when you change the network.
Free version has some limited features, but I think it’s enough for usual usage.
Web terminal looks like this;
