Connecting to LightSpeed server remotely


Is anyone out there connecting remotely to their LightSpeed Server?

This is something I would love to get done.

I have an idea as to how to do this in theory. I need my public IP, I need to do port forwarding to the IP address of the LS Server. And I am guessing in the POS app I enter the server as the public IP and the port number its forwarded to? For example,

If anyone has this working, I would greatly appreciate your help.

    Hi Flow!

    While NATing should work, a much better and more secure method would be to set up a VPN tunnel between the network on which your remote iPad resides and the network on which your Lite Server is on.

    Without doing so, you may be putting your account and your data at risk, so something to consider.
