Tutorial : Remote control of Usine from Internet

HH4 provides a simple and efficient way control the grid-panel of Usine from internet in a web page.

make the remote port opened

Usine will use a web socket, on the port defined in the setup-panel-tab-network (80 by default), to communicate with the Internet web page. This port must be opened on the Usine's computer but by default your router will probably block it. The first thing to do is to add a NAT rule in the router configuration to open the remote port.

activate remote control

Go in the setup-panel-tab-network and activate the enable remote control option.

Notice the remote ID string (A1WRDI in this example), which will be used for identification.

By default, the remote port is 80 but you can change it in case of conflict.

You have also the field remote control connected witch is ON when Usine is remotely connected.

Inside a patch you can use this field with the usine-setup-settings module to know if usine is connected.

launch a web page

Go to http://www.brainmodular.com/remote.html and enter the remote ID of the computer you want to connect to, ie. A1WRDI

Then, click on connect. If everything is ok (especially if the remote port is opened), the web page will connect to Usine and you'll be able to change the current grid position within the web page.
