    Hi All,
    Could anyone give me some tips on how to connect to my project remotely. Unable to connect unless via home WiFi. Is it something to do with router settings and port forwarding? Please excuse my ignorance on the tech side. Obviously I don't have a clue - so your help would be much appreciated :).

    Port forward port 80 to the ip address of the shac or the additional port specified under system/services HTTP server.

    You will also need either a static external ip address, or use a dynamic dns provider like dynDNS that will map a dedicated URL to your dymanic ip address. Just google "remotely accessing home devices"

    All sorted for the hacker waiting at your door ;-)
    I would not set your additional port on http, use https, install a cert and make it a real complex password. Don't use admin, complex the hell out of that password and don't use it (at least until Schneider allow disabling or renaming that user)
