This example will work in Windows Command Prompt or Powershell. These commands are compatible with connectd version 4.12 or later.
Example command line
.\connectd.exe -s -p \ BASE_64_USER \ AUTHHASH \ UID \ BIND_PORT \ ENCRYPTION_MODE \
RESTRICTEDCONNECTIP \ LOCAL_HOST_ADDRESS \ MAXOUTSTANDING \ PROXYLIFETIME \ IDLE-LIMIT
|-p||Run using command line parameters with authhash|
|-s||Show connection status (optional)|
|BASE_64_USER||Your Base64 encoded username (probably your e-mail)|
|AUTHHASH||Your remote.it account authhash|
|UID||The UID (also called address or Service ID) of the service you want to connect to|
|BIND_PORT||The port you want to bind the connection to on your local machine (e.g. 33000)|
The level of encryption to use. The choices are:
NOTE: Please use mode 2. Modes 0 and 1 are not secure.
If you wish to allow other users on your LAN to access this P2P connection, set this to "0.0.0.0"
to allow connections from any network interface, or the IP address of a specific interface to allow
only incoming connections on that interface. To allow only the local machine to use this P2P
connection, set this value to "127.0.0.1".
The address to bind to on your local network. This is normally 127.0.0.1.
|MAXOUTSTANDING||Maximum number of packets outstanding on a connection. Set to 40.|
|PROXYLIFETIME||The number of seconds this proxy should last. Set this to 0 for no limit.|
The number of seconds to wait if there are no active tunnels before terminating the connection.
Set this to 0 for no limit. The setting for PROXYLIFETIME still applies.
.\connectd.exe -s -p \ eW91cm5hbWVAZXhhbXBsZS5jb20= \ # Base64 encoded username/email c3VwM3JzZWtyZXQh \ # plain text authhash 80:00:00:00:00:00:00:F1 \ # Service UID on remote.it T33000 \ # Port to bind to, prefixed with "T" 2 \ # Encryption mode = XXTEA 0.0.0.0 \ # allow incoming connections on any interface 127.0.0.1 \ # Localhost address 40 \ # MAXOUTSTANDING 0 \ # proxy lifetime, 0 = no limit 0 # limit if no active tunnels, 0 = no limit
Once the connection is established, (approximately ten seconds) you will see:
Starting Proxy on port 33000 on index 1.
Parameters are the same as used in the previous example.
The above command all on one line is:
Now you can use your P2P connection using 127.0.0.1 on port 33000. For example, you can type 127.0.0.1:33000 in a browser window for a web application, or start an ssh connection to 127.0.0.1 port 33000 in a new console window.
You can hit CTRL-C at any time to terminate the P2P connection.
