Set Up a Nvidia Jetson

Sharing and Organizations

Nvidia Jetsons are frequently used for AI development and robotics. These instructions are intended as a general guide for remote access. As a general rule, if your Jetson 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
2. Click "+" (Add Device) and select "Linux" (note this also covers Jetson), copy the generated code and paste it into your SSH console of your Jetson system (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 Nvidia Jetson 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 Nvidia Jetson. 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 Nvidia Jetson.

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

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 an application such as terminal, VNC viewer or a browser (see image below). When you are done with the connection, click "Stop Connection".
