VRM for node red dashboard

Hi, I have v2.7 Venus large installed on my RPi3B.


All is working fine on the same network.

I can access the Pi from different networks through the portal but I can’t access the node-red dashboard

Hi @Bear,

how can we help if we don't know what and how you have tried to access Node-RED?
What do you get as output?

Sorry, but this is not enough information in order to help.

Again my question: how exactly did you try to access Node-RED?

In the top of your browser in the screenshot, it says 12345. Thats wrong. More carefully read the manual.

For now thats the only solution

success!

It would be much easier to follow up on your comments if you simply hit reply instead of comment/answer. This to ensure the helper gets notified of the reply. Just for future reference.

My guess is that you simply use the wrong portal ID. The '12345' is just an example which you should change into the one from your installation on VRM.

Go to VRM/Settings/General and see what your VRM Portal ID looks like. Exchange that number with the 12345 and report back if that's working for you.

Does that mean it's working for you now?

Maybe it is an idea to Add the two buttons in the VRM > Remote Console > menu.

And only show these buttons if the services (NodeRed and/or SignalK) are up and running.

Then the correct portal ID is included automagically ;-)

Haha for sure! All in due time.

Is there a way to install vnc on the RPi so its as easy as going to the vnc app and then the nod red dashboard automatically comes up.

I was doing this with the RPi before i installed the Venus image and it worked really great from my ipad, iPhone or pc. No need to enter url addresses and press buttons.


Failing that is there an app that will automatically link into the node red dashboard once configured.
