I want to run a remote node on the cloud, so i dont need to manage disks and internet connectivity. I setup a remote node by following this guide
I opened the azure firewall to allow SSH, 18080 and 18081
However I cannot get the gui wallet to connect to it.
I used net cat to verify:
22 port [tcp/ssh] succeeded!
18080 port [tcp/ssh] succeeded!
However 18081 fails to connect and found this…
So it looks by default 18081 does not accept remote connections, because its a security risk?
Is there a guide on how to setup your remote not so it can act like a node on monero world. I want to connect my desktop gui wallet to this note and also my mobile wallet node as well. But without people connecting to it and running commands – which others mentioned.
Is it safe to do?
./monerod –rpc-bind-ip <external.ip.of.node> –restricted-rpc –confirm-external-bind
I don’t really understand this command… What does it mean when its binding to an external ip. Is that my ip – where i am running the wallet or the public ip of my monero node ( on the cloud ) .
