There are many advantages to setting up a private network of devices that need to be managed remotely. Much like a virtual private network (VPN), this software-defined network enables:

  • Access to devices no matter where in the world they reside
  • Access to devices for troubleshooting

Using the network's unique Node ID as a secure token, an end-to-end handshake between devices ensures a direct, secure connection.

To configure remote access to a LoopEdge gateway:

In LoopCloud

  1. Create a LoopEdge model by selecting the MQTT plain TCP connection. See Create a Device Model.
    Note that the model's JASON schema includes a remote network parameter.

      "mqttHostName": "%MQTT_HOST%",
      "mqttTcpPort": "%MQTT_TCP_PORT%",
      "mqttUserName": "%MQTT_USERNAME%",
      "mqttPassword": "%MQTT_PASSWORD%",
      "mqttClientId": "%MQTT_CLIENT_ID%",
      "mqttReqTopicName": "%MQTT_REQ_TOPIC%",
      "mqttRespTopicName": "%MQTT_RESP_TOPIC%",
      "mqttDataTopicName": "%MQTT_DATA_TOPIC%",
      "remoteNetwork": "%REMOTE_NETWORK%"
  2. From the LoopEdge model, create a device. See Add a Device from a Model.
  3. In the navigation panel, go to Device Mgmt > Devices to view the newly created device in the list.
  4. In the device's Action list, click Activate.

  5. In the Activation Code pop-up, click the  icon to copy the code to the clipboard.

    This one-time-only code is valid for only 60 seconds. Be sure to take the following steps in LoopEdge immediately.

In LoopEdge

  1. In the navigation panel, go to System > Device Management.
  2. Under Cloud Activation, paste the activation code that is in the clipboard and click Activate.

    When the activation is complete, a DataHub Cloud Connector automatically gets created. To view the connector in LoopEdge, navigate to DataHub.
