Access your Raspberry Pi remotely

This tutorial will explain how to install LocalXpose in your raspberry pi and enable it on boot and access your services anytime anywhere.
Suppose we have a custom domain name called pi.xtestgo.xyz, configured and ready to use with LocalXpose (see previous create custom domain), now it is time to use it on raspberry pi.

1. SSH into the raspberry pi

2. Download LocalXpose

wget https://api.localxpose.io/api/v2/downloads/loclx-linux-arm.zip

3. Unzip LocalXpose

unzip loclx-linux-arm.zip

5. Create a unit file

To keep LocalXpose running in the background and on boot, we need to create a unit file
nano localxpose.service
paste the following and save it
[Unit]
Description=localxpose
After=network-online.target
[Service]
ExecStart=/home/pi/loclx tunnel http --reserved-domain pi.xtestgo.xyz --to 8000
Restart=always
RestartSec=15
[Install]
WantedBy=multi-user.target
Replace the domain and the port with yours.

6. Copy the service file to system directory

sudo cp localxpose.service /etc/systemd/system/

7. Reload the systemd manager

sudo systemctl daemon-reload

8. Login through the CLI

sudo ./loclx account login
will ask you to enter your access token which you can get from your dashboard https://localxpose.io/dashboard

9. Enable the service to be run on boot

sudo systemctl enable localxpose.service

10. Run LocalXpose service

sudo systemctl start localxpose.service
