Hi Rudi,

If RigPi power is lost it will reboot when power is returned.  It will reconnect to the Internet automatically.

If the Internet connection is lost, RigPi reconnects when the Internet is restored.  Keep in mind that if power is lost or the Internet drops, you may receive a new WAN IP and/or LAN IP.  There are steps you can take to prevent changes from occurring.  Furthermore, if Internet is lost and you happen to be in Transmit, RigPi has a Deadman timeout that will kick in after a set amount of time.  See RigPi settings.

Settings are not lost, they are kept in a database.

The only way to restart RigPi remotely if you have no Internet or can’t connect to RigPi for some other reason is by use of an independent power switch.
