Connect from an outside network (Method 1)

To connect to your gizmo server from outside your LAN, port forward the manager port to your Server's local IP address

The default Manager port is 44967 TCP

Follow the instructions here to port forward port 44967 TCP on your specific Router

Use your Gizmo server's internet IP address in Gizmo Manager HOST NAME field

Connect from an outside network (Method 2 - no port forwarding)

  1. Register a free account with NGROK
  2. Download and extract NGROK executable on the server
  3. Run NGROK.exe with parameter "authtoken <your_auth_token>". You can find your authentication token in your Dashboard
  4. Run NGROK.exe again with parameter "tcp 44967" to create a tunnel for Gizmo Manager port
  5. Use the forwarding address in Gizmo Manager to connect

Note: Each time you run NGROK, you will get a different adddress:port to connect to. To always get the same, purchase a basic Plan
