I have installed Home Assistant on a Raspberry Pi 4 and am trying (unsuccessfully) to set up remote access. I have installed the DuckDns addon and that side of it seems OK but I think I am failing with the port-forwarding side on the HG659.

 

Can anyone give me a step by step on that part?

 

Thanks. 





 I'm supposed to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder for me to find one now.

If you're having problems with access, I'd recommend joining Nabu Casa Cloud (https://www.nabucasa.com/). It removes port forwarding requirements plus may be more secure than just using port forwarding. As well as simplifying the configuration of SSL Certificates, Spotify, Amazon Echo / Google Home and a ton of other Integrations that require internet access

 

Bonus, you're directly supporting the Home Assistant Developers.

 

Importantly, if you happen to have an ISP which is using CGN this is effectively your only option for inbound access.

I work for a Hosting Provider - But my opinions are my own.

Hi, why are you mapping it to https(443), is the app not expecting 8123?

Hmmm, I think thats where I am getting things screwed up. I thought external was the port to and internal was the port from, obviously I am in the dark here. So should it be the other way around?

If the app is expecting traffic on 8123 then internal and external should be 8123

What about Anydesk? My favourite for remote access.

 

Looks like it is avaiable for the Pi.

 

Never had to change anything in my router.

Me personally would use ssh tunnels, but if you are having issues this far it might be a bridge too far.
