If you are not automatically on the Axis device detail, click on your Axis device. Click "+" (Add Service) on the device detail.
We will first add access to the Web UI by selecting HTTP. You may supply a name such as Web UI and leave all of the rest of the defaults and click save.
Follow the same procedure to add SSH service and RTSP service. (For services which are not available in the selector, you can use the TCP selection and specify the name and port, in this case 554)

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

If you see that the service is offline, you will need to restart the device once to enable the added services. (This is a known issue in older versions of the software. You can restart the device in the Web UI under the "Maintenance" menu selection.
