Steps to Configure LoopEdge Remote Access

...

  1. Copy the network Node ID.



    This unique ID serves as a token to authorize the Loop platform to join the secure private network. 

In LoopCloud 

  1. In the LoopCloud navigation panel, click Remote.

    _img_LoopCloud_RemoteNetwork


  2. Click the + icon in the upper right of the window to add a member to the network.
  3. In the Add new member dialog, paste the Node ID that you copied from the Loop RemoteAccess service and click Save.



    The node will be listed in the Remote Network list, as part of your network.

  4. At the top of the LoopCloud Remote Network window, click the  icon to copy the network ID.
    You will use this ID in the remote access service to join the network. This establishes the handshake between the private network and the Loop platform.

...

  1. In the LoopEdge navigation panel, expand System and click Remote Access.
    A network card will be displayed with an IPv6 address.

    Include Page

    _img_LoopEdgeSystemRemoteAccess


  2. Select and copy the IPv6 address from the displayed Remote Access network card.
  3. To remotely access the LoopEdge device, enter the IPv6 address enclosed in square brackets into the address/search bar of a web browser.

    Example:
