This article explains the procedures to be followed to access SmartLogger interface remotely.
A common application to access the SmartLogger interface is using an Ethernet cable on-site. As site visits are not always possible, making SmartLogger interface accessible remotely is very useful.
The following procedure can be followed to make SmartLogger interface accessible remotely:
Step 1. Obtaining a Static IP for the Router
Routers have internal (local) and external IP addresses. To be able to access the SmartLogger interface remotely, the external router IP address must be static. To obtain a static IP for the 3G/4G router, an application can be made to the internet provider. Making the static IP request with the first application to the internet supplier will make the process simpler.
Step 2. Assigning a Static IP for the SmartLogger
The SmartLogger IP should be correct and static. After logging in to SmartLogger interface, assign a static IP according to the internal (local) router IP address (last digit of the assigned IP should be taken by no other devices in the network, including the router).
Step 3. Logging on Router Interface
Router user guide can be followed to login to router interface.
Step 4. Assigning a Port for SmartLogger in Router Interface (Port Forwarding)
Port Forwarding allows you to set up public services on your network, such as web servers, FTP servers, e-mail servers, or other specialized Internet application such as accessing SmartLogger interface remotely. Each router brand has a unique interface. After logging in to the router interface, proceed to NAT/QoS settings on the main screen. If this section is not available, find and proceed to “Port Forwarding” section in the router interface.
In the “Port Forwarding” section, multiple SmartLoggers/devices can be assigned to specific port numbers.
Step 5. Logging in to SmartLogger Interface Remotely
After following the procedure above, to access the SmartLogger interface remotely, type in the following to the address bar in the internet browser of your computer:
External IP is the same as the static IP offered by the internet provider. For example, if the static IP is: 188.8.131.52 then the connection links will be:
If the procedure is done correctly, the login page of SmartLogger interface will be accessed.
