Warning

Please note that this section describes a software package which has been superseded. We do not recommend the use of remoteit 3.x for new designs.  For instructions on downloading and installing the most recent device package, please follow this link.

find.remote.it is a network tool that lets you locate and connect to or register all the devices on your LAN which have the remoteit package installed.  This update enables a fully web based configuration tool for your local area network.

Once you have a remoteit enabled device running on your LAN, you can access it using http://find.remote.it. Use the left and right arrows to navigate through all of your LAN devices if you have more than one.

Browser Security Warning

You may see a browser security warning when accessing find.remote.it on your LAN. Read the explanation below.

Examples of browser security warnings you may see:

remote.it uses a certificate to allow encryption of your connection during the initial setup of your device. We can’t ask you to get a domain name and a certificate so we can communicate with your new device, so we have done that for you with a self-signed certificate. That means you will have to acknowledge it is OK to trust us and the self-signed certificate. If you are uncomfortable with this practice, or do not understand, you do not have to allow the connection.  You can use the remoteit Command Line Interface instead.

If find.remote.it doesn't work

Your client PC is not on the same LAN as the device

If you are setting up remoteit on a hosted server such as an EC2 instance at AWS, then your client PC is not on the same LAN as the target device.  While you could set up a temporary Security Group to allow external access to the device, this won't work either.  Your best bet is to use the remoteit Command Line Interface.

Your Router is Using IP Isolation mode

You may encounter issues configuring your device from another computer on the same LAN if your router is currently using IP Isolation mode.  The details may vary from router to router, but most commonly, this prevents clients attached to the wireless LAN to directly communicate with any other devices on the LAN.  If this is the case, you may try:

  • Disabling IP Isolation mode in your router
  • Connecting your client PC to the network using an Ethernet cable
  • Configuring your device directly though its own console (i.e. keyboard and monitor) using the remoteit Command Line Interface.

Miscellaneous other reasons

find.remote.it may fail for other reasons which may be difficult to diagnose.  You may also try:

  • Accessing the newly installed web admin page using <IP address>:29999 in your browser, where <IP address> is the LAN IP address of the device you are attempting to configure.
  • Configuring your device directly though its own console (i.e. keyboard and monitor) using the remoteit Command Line Interface.
  • Making sure that the remoteit agent is running properly.
