Set Up an ASUS Tinker Board

ASUS Tinker Board Logo


The ASUS Tinker Board is a maker board with tons of uses. These instructions are intended as a guide for remote access. As a general rule, if your Tinker Board is hosting a service which is accessible via a LAN address and port, then Remote.It can be used for access from outside the LAN without port forwarding on a public IP address.

You will need:

Let's get started:

1. Sign into the Remote.It portal https://app.remote.it
2. Click "+" (Add Device) and select "ASUS Tinker Board", copy the generated code and paste it into your SSH console of your Tinker Board (see image below).
This command will automatically download and install Remote.It and register it to your account.

3. Set up services
The Remote.It web portal will notify you that your Tinker Board has been registered and automatically detect and set up SSH access.

If you have additional services/ports you would like to set up for Remote.It access, click "+" (Add Service) on the device detail. Make sure that the service is running on your Tinker Board. Provide a name, port, and service host address (Defaults are provided for most services). Only override default ports if you have assigned a different port for this service on your Tinker Board.

Repeat for all the services you would like to access remotely.

4. Connect
Select the service you would like to create a Remote.It connection to and click "Connect". You can now use this connection address in the application such as terminal, VNC viewer or a browser (see image below). When you are done with the connection, click "Stop Connection".
