Use remote.it to make secure, private connections to your Raspberry Pi or any Linux device across the Internet and automate repetitive bulk operations using a "one-to-many" command line interface to 10s, 100s, or 1000s of devices in the field.
This page will guide you through the installation of remote.it's Fleet Management tool on your Pi.
remote.it helps you manage your fleet of networked devices from any browser or through our API interface. Use remote.it as a "one-to-many" command line interface to your entire fleet.
We recommend the use of the latest Raspbian OS version for Raspberry Pi users.
We recommend you start with a fresh SD Card and an up to date Raspbian Jessie image. After you have installed Raspbian, make sure your Pi has an Internet connection and open up a terminal window to the Pi command line using either SSH or a keyboard, mouse, and HDMI monitor. You should also make sure that SSH is enabled, either by using the raspi-config program, or creating a file called ssh in the boot partition of the SD Card.
From the command line on your Pi type:
sudo apt-get update
then download the remot3.it deb package from the Pi Foundation repository. This command will download and install the remot3.it weavedconnectd deb package on your Pi.
sudo apt-get install weavedconnectd
Now you are ready to set-up remot3.it on your Pi. Type the following command to get started.
you should see the Sign In Menu in your terminal window as given below. Enter Menu option "1" to Sign In to your remot3.it (or Weaved) account. If you don't already have a remot3.it (or Weaved) account you can create one by entering Menu item "2" instead.
after you sign in you will be prompted to enter a device name for your Pi (ex. my_Pi_001) as shown below.
Select the menu item desired to enable your Pi's TCP services (e.g. SSH) for remote access. We recommend installing remot3.it for SSH on port 22 to get started. (menu item "1")
When you are done adding services to remot3.it just enter "5" (Return to previous menu) and Exit out of the installer menus.
That's it. You made it! Now you can connect to your Pi from anywhere and also upload shell scripts to execute across one or multiple Pis.
Connect to your Pi using remot3.it
Now go to https://www.remot3.it and login.
You will see your Pi in the "Manage Devices" view. Click on the "Device Name" to connect !
see videos at bottom of this page demonstrating connection and script usage:
Here's what to click in the remot3.it portal to make a connection to your Pi.
Sample script and how to run it on your Pi fleet:
remot3.it lets you upload and execute shell scripts (bash) across one or multiple devices. Here's how to do it for Raspberry Pi: 1. download the sample Raspberry Pi bash script from github at this link https://github.com/weaved/misc_bins_and_scripts/blob/master/remot3.it_scripts/pi_demo_script_remot3it.sh IMPORTANT: to download the sample script "pi_demo_script_remot3it.sh" from github you must right-click on the "Raw" button at github and select "Save link as" to download and save it to…
Raspberry Pi System Requirements:
These instructions will guide you through the installation of remot3.it on any Raspberry Pi running the latest Raspbian OS (Jessie versions). remot3.it works with Raspberry Pi 3 / Pi 2 / B/B+/A/A+ / Pi Zero and the Compute Module hardware versions.
Use NOOBS or Raspbian from https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/23 and follow the instructions from the Pi foundation to get your Pi running with Raspbian Jessie. If you need to use an existing SDCard just make sure it doesn't have an earlier installation of Weaved on it.
Your Pi must have a live Internet connection to perform these instructions and to use remot3.it.
