reverse SSH alternatives

Mon Dec 29, 2014 1:02 am

Hi guys. I am currently using reverse SSH to get access to my pi located at a remote location, using a tunnel set up on my server. I would like to know if there are any other alternative protocols or software to access the pi remotely, and access stuff on the pi ?

There are always alternatives. Without any list of requirements, the field is wide open. Here are just a few ways to access a RPI remotely.

port tunnelling
email gateway
web pages (webmin, DIY scripts, etc)

and more.

Run a VPN server on your premises and have the Pis connect
to it.
