A Guide To Safe Remote Access of OctoPrint

Thank you for the post however upon skimming through this the only thing I see is that I shouldn't connect it to the internet

Yeah you should know what you're doing.

A completely safe way would be a streaming with a plugin like OctoPrint-WebcamStreamer or OctoPrint-RTMPStreamer to twitch or youtube.

I want to stream to twitch but still be able to check it on my cell

I mean you can check the twitch stream with your cell?
Or do you mean you want to be able to control the printer with your cell phone?

I personally use a vpn to connect to my home network and the OctoRemote app to control and monitor my printer.

If you want to do the same you should do some research on how to install and use your own vpn server. Some routers also got a built in vpn server which makes it easier for beginners.

I want to be streaming the print, leave the house, check the print with octoprint

Yes I would suggest vpn in this case

Thanks but would it allow 2 logins into octoprint?

Yes :slight_smile:
