What i need is a Sleep-Button and that this App is working from outside my Network - like Teamviewer.

Do i need to install a plugin on my unRAID-Server?

Is there a "Test-Version" available?

I would suggest the openvpn-as docker to be able to use ControlR outside your local network.

Why?  It's a more secure way.  I remember talking to jbodriguez about the remote access issue when he first developed the plugin and that was what we both thought.

Because it costs money - i need this some times when i am outside but not so often to spend money on a VPN-Service.

If this App cant reach the server from outside the network, then its useless for me.

No it doesn't, it's free for up to two users I think.

Free license for 2 concurrent users so if access was very random you could probably have quite a few more.

OpenVPN-Access Server is a server so there is no need for paying for a commercial server. Once the docker is configured you would download authorization certificates to whatever client machines you want to use to connect back to your local network. I guess you could say you are the vendor.

So that mean: I install OpenVPN as Docker on unRAID and as App on my Android phone and thats it?

How will this pass my Router? Portforwarding maby?

Or shall OpenVPN run directly on the router?

Port forwarding probably, although I understand it can be run directly on some routers.

@gridrunner has made a very good video.

You can also checkout the OpenVPN-AS support thread.

To supplement what CHBMB and wgstarks mentioned, the ControlR FAQ provides some additional information.
