macchina.io Remote Manager (formerly my-devices.net) provides secure remote connectivity to IoT edge devices via HTTP or TCP-based protocols.
macchina.io Remote Manager provides secure and transparent remote access to the built-in web server of a device. Access the web interface of your device from anywhere using any web browser.
With macchina.io Remote Manager mobile apps can remotely and securely access the REST API of a device — from anywhere.
macchina.io Remote Manager provides secure remote forwarding of TCP-based protocols, including SSH and VNC, for secure remote management, troubleshooting and debugging of Linux-based IoT devices.
The tunnel connection between device and Remote Manager and also the connection between client (web browser) and Remote Manager are secured using TLS.
Through a secure tunnel to the macchina.io Remote Manager the edge device becomes just another host on the internet, addressable via its own URL and protected by the Remote Manager server against unauthorized or malicious access.
The macchina.io Remote Manager typically runs on a virtual Linux server or in a container. Multiple instances can be run in a load-balancing setup if required to reliably handle a very large number of simultaneously connected devices and user sessions.
Remote Manager works with home automation devices, monitoring and control systems for green energy facilities, remote automation and data acquisition devices, data loggers, device servers, IoT gateways, POS systems, IP cameras and network video recorders, remote edge computing infrastructure, or any other connected device with a built-in web, SSH, or VNC server.

Download one of the pre-built agent executables for your platform, or the C++ device SDK source code. As a first step, we recommend running a pre-built Agent (WebTunnelAgent) on your desktop system.
After activating your account and signing in, go to your Account page by clicking the user icon or your email address in the upper right of the web browser window.
On the Account page, create and download a configuration file for the Agent executable (WebTunnelAgent) using the Generate Configuration File form. Put the configuration file, which must be named WebTunnelAgent.properties, in the same directory as the WebTunnelAgent executable.
Then start the Agent, either by double-clicking the WebTunnelAgent executable (on Windows) or starting it from a command shell. Next, go to the Remote Manager dashboard page (by clicking the home icon), where you should see your device ("Unnamed Device"). Clicking on the device name will bring up your device's web interface.
