The Internet of thing's bridge

Remotely connect to any device without exposing open ports to hackers. Works over mobile networks, mobile hot-spots and other environments where network access management is typically not possible. Software only solution that works anywhere there is a TCP/IP stack.

I will explain how you can access your DOMINO.IO from anywhere and how you can do your preferred 802.11/802.3 module be visible from anywhere in the world using the DOMINO.IO. The module choose to explains the DOMINO.IO use was the ESP8266.


Normally, when you use the ESP8266 as web server, tests are done using the LAN network. When you want to test from the WAN, you normally have to config your router (NAT/FIREWALL) to accept outside access. If you are familiar with your router, this is not a problem, but imagine dozens of other routers models where you need to know each one or need to know the NET access rights? Maybe it will be headache for you. 

What do i need ?

Well, i need a solution where i can add dozens of ESP8266 in my enviroment (LAN) and give access to all of them (web server) in anywhere of world without have to know anything about router config (NAT/FIREWALL) .I want too that dozens of ESP8266 can be accessed from WAN, using WEB, IOS and can share them for anyone.

The solution 

To solve these need, here some steps:
  1. create a INTERNET CLOUD account on Remot3.it;
  2. purchase one DOMINO.IO (Starter Kit);
  3. enable the DOMINO.IO to access the Internet;
  4. install a special software on DOMINO.IO to enable it to register on Remot3.it;
  5. make your ESP8266 connect to DOMINO.IO;
  6. make your ESP8266 a web server;
  7. setup the DOMINO.IO proxy to access the ESP8266 ip/port.
  8. access the ESP8266 webpage from https://remote.it/
  9. access the ESP8266 webpage from IOS app
  10. Share your ESP8266
  11. Help
Create a INTERNET CLOUD account on Remot3

Enter in https://remote.it/, register and enter you login and password. 

Purchase one DOMINO.IO (Starter Kit)

Enable the DOMINO.IO to access the Internet

The DOMINO.IO is very easy to use, there is a friendly user interface. Config it to access the INTERNET,
i suggest to config your router as repeater.
The DOMINO.IO ip is

Install a special software on DOMINO.IO  to enable it to register on Remot3.it

Connect your PC to the DOMINO.IO and use the Putty utility, open a terminal to access the DOMINO.IO (SSH), port

type your root login/password  (root/goodlife) (factory password)

goto  root directory
wget  http://home.mycal.net/connectd-MediaTek.tgz
tar -xvzf  connectd-MediaTek.tgz
cd /usr/bin

after install
execute vi /etc/rc.local and add the following line

@reboot /usr/bin/connectd_start_all
save it and reboot

Follow the instructions

More details in

Insert the name to show in the portal, i choose web_ssh

choose 1 and then 2

Give a name to the service (web80)

Repeat the process to ssh, i gave the name ssh22

Now choose 5 

now reset the DOMINO.IO or type reboot
now DOMINO.IO will connect to remot3.it

In https://app.remote.it/web/ webpage you will see this

click on web_ssh

and the webpage of DOMINO.IO will open

In the remot3 portal, now click no ssh22

Use putty

And you will access the DOMINO.IO ssh 

Accessing the DOMINO.IO webpage from mobile

You should download the Remot3 on app store or google play

But if you want to connect to the ESP8266's 8080 port ( web server) fro anywhere, then please, follow the steps.

Make your ESP8266 connect to DOMINO.IO

Config your ESP8266 to connect to DOMINO.IO and make it static ip, for example,
Config your ESP8266 to be a web server in some port, for example 8080.

(HelloServer.ino example of Arduino)

See the instructions to install it and change the settings to 8080 and static ip to

Run it

Open it on web

Setup the DOMINO.IO proxy to access the ESP8266 ip/port

Follow the instructions

More details in

Choose 1 (login) and then choose 2 (lan services)


Choose 6 (Custom TCP) and Port 8080

wait to registering and give a name to service (esp8266)

Good, service esp8266 registered

Accessing the ESP8266 webpage from remot3.it

Enter in the https://app.remote.it/web/ insert you login and password and select the device "esp8266". 

You will get a proxy link

Copy and past to your browser!
After this, Remot3.it will show the ESP8266 web server for you.
