macchina.io REMOTE

macchina.io REMOTE

Secure remote access via web (HTTP), shell (SSH), remote desktop (RDP, VNC) and other protocols to IoT and edge devices behind routers or firewalls.

Source Code and Binaries/Images

Remote Manager Server

The Remote Manager Server is the core of macchina.io REMOTE. It's a server application that runs on a Linux system.

Server Binaries and Docker Images

Binaries and Docker images are available to set up your own server instance.

SDK and Device Agent

The macchina.io REMOTE SDK is used to build the device agent, client tools, and other applications wanting to integrate agent or client features.

Device Agent Binaries

Pre-compiled binaries of the macchina.io REMOTE device agent for different platforms.

Device Agent Docker Image

Docker image for macchina.io REMOTE Device Agent on Docker Hub.

Device Agent Docker Sources

Sources for building the macchina.io REMOTE Device Agent Docker image.

SDK Source Code

Source code and instructions for macchina.io REMOTE Device Agent and client tools such as remote-client, remote-ssh, etc.

Client Tools

Client applications for starting SSH, VNC or RDP sessions from the command-line, or directly from the macchina.io REMOTE web user interface.

macchina.io REMOTE Helper

macchina.io REMOTE Helper is a native Windows desktop application that integrates with the macchina.io REMOTE web user interface in the browser and allows you to launch an external secure shell (SSH) or remote desktop (RDP or VNC) client directly from the macchina.io REMOTE web user interface.

macchina.io REMOTE Command-Line Clients

The macchina.io REMOTE SDK includes a number of command-line clients for starting SSH (Secure Shell), SCP (Secure Copy), SFTP (Secure File-Transfer Protocol), RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) or VNC (Virtual Network Computing) sessions, or for tunneling arbitrary TCP ports between a client machine and the remote device.

  • remote-client : This executable can run on a client machine (Windows, macOS or Linux) to create a secure tunnel from the client machine to the remote device, via the macchina.io REMOTE server. It is required for tunneling TCP-based protocols not directly supported by macchina.io REMOTE, such Modbus/TCP, OPC-UA, or application-specific protocols.
  • remote-ssh : This is a variant of remote-client that first creates a tunnel connection from your local machine (Windows, macOS or Linux) to the remote device, then launches a SSH client using that tunnel connection.
  • remote-scp : This is a variant of remote-client that first creates a tunnel connection from your local machine (Windows, macOS or Linux) to the remote device, then launches a SCP (Secure/SSH File Copy) client using that tunnel connection.
  • remote-sftp : This is a variant of remote-client that first creates a tunnel connection from your local machine (Windows, macOS or Linux) to the remote device, then launches a SFTP (Secure/SSH File Transfer Protocol) client using that tunnel connection.
  • remote-vnc : This is a variant of remote-client that first creates a tunnel connection from your local machine (Windows, macOS or Linux) to a remote device running a VNC (Virtual Network Computing) server, then launches a VNC remote desktop client using that tunnel connection.
  • remote-rdp : This is a variant of remote-client that first creates a tunnel connection from your local machine (Windows, macOS) to a remote Windows device (which must have the remote desktop feature enabled), then launches a Microsoft Remote Desktop (RDP) client using that tunnel connection.

Gateway

The macchina.io REMOTE Gateway allows you to connect multiple devices or services to a macchina.io REMOTE server, without having to run the Device Agent on every device. It typically runs on a gateway device such as a Raspberry Pi or a router.
