Remote Connect

The Loxone Remote Connect service allows easy external access to your Loxone system, without having to set up any port forwarding.
This allows you to access and operate the Miniserver from anywhere via the Loxone App or the web browser.
Also, configuration via Loxone Config is possible remotely.

The Miniserver Gen 1 is not compatible with this service.

Use External Access instead.

Activation

Register your Miniserver (Requires registration via our website)

Perform the initial setup and select a secure password for your user, this is a prerequisite for the use of Remote Connect.

Start Loxone Config and connect to your Miniserver.
Then open Configure Miniserver, and activate Remote Connect:

loxone remote connect setup

When using “Remote Connect”, “Loxone Cloud DNS” and “Use Loxone Certificate” (in the Security tab) are automatically enabled.

To also enable remote configuration via Loxone Config, enable the option:
Allow this Miniserver to be configured remotely with Loxone Config over the internet.

Finally, click on Apply and send to Miniserver and the Miniserver will reboot.

After a few minutes the Miniserver can be reached from the Internet at an address according to the scheme https://dns.loxonecloud.com/504F94000000.
The latter part of the address is the serial number of your Miniserver.

Access is then encrypted, IPv4 and IPv6 are supported.

If you are using a Miniserver Gen 1, Remote Connect is not available in the configuration dialog.

Technical Data

The Miniserver connects to one of the following Remote Connect servers:
153.92.198.159
195.201.222.243

Changing ports in the range between 20000 and 65000 are used.

If necessary, enable these addresses including the port range in your firewall.
