Remote access

All of Latitude.sh's servers feature Intelligent Platform Management Interface (IPMI) so your server can be managed remotely from anywhere. You can access your server's IPMI through the browser or CLI. Remote access allows you to manage your server even when it's off or unresponsive.

Remote Access is included at no additional charge.

To connect to Latitude.sh's internal network you will need to download a Fortinet-compatible VPN client.

Connecting to the VPN

The first step is to connect to our internal network by connecting to a VPN. This is needed because our IPMI runs on private IPs for security purposes.

  1. On the Servers page, select the server you'd like to access and click on Remote access

Now that you have established a VPN tunnel between your computer and Latitude.sh's internal network, you're ready to connect to the IPMI.

  1. On Step 2 in the Remote Access page, click on Retrieve IPMI credentials. This will give you the private IP, username, and password for your server's IPMI.
  2. Copy the username and password and paste the IP Address on your browser window.
