Port forwarding

If your ISP has provided you with an external IP address for the router, you can configure port forwarding to access PiKVM.

Warning

  • Change passwords before opening access to PiKVM from the outside Internet.
  • It's also a good practice to use only HTTPS (port 443) with a valid certificate (like Let's Encrypt).
  • Additionally, you can use a custom external port number instead of 443, for example 14438 to avoid common port scanners.
  • The Web UI runs on port 80 and 443.
  • VNC (if you use it) runs on port 5900.

If you don't have an external IP address, then we recommend trying Tailscale VPN.
