Re: Remote access - I want to connect ubitx to Raspberry PI and remote in #remoteaccess
I am running my uBitx v5 24/7 - connected to a Raspberry PI 3 as an FT8 'monitor'. I can access
it from anywhere on any device (laptop, iPhone, iPad) with VNC and OpenVPN. A big advantage
of this setup is that the radio is always 'ready for action' - even if I have only a few minutes time
to transmit (FT8 or FT4 or FS8).

part of your home network (fileserver, printer, etc.) as well - not just VNC running on the
I do not not recommend to directly enable a port to connect to the Raspberry PI VNC server,
instead enable a port to connect to the OpenVPN server.
