Remote restart


#1

Is it possible to restart a Pi using the Internet IP address?

If you can get a ssh connection to it, and authenticate, sure.
Whether you can do that depends on what you have in the way of routers / firewalls / etc in front of it.

Or if you are running piaware, and it is connected to FlightAware OK, and you have allowed remote updates, then you can use the FlightAware “my ads-b” control panel to send a command to piaware to tell it to reboot the system.

Thanks for that. I’m running a Pi with auto updates enabled. Is that the same as remote updates? I’ve tried sending a command from the ads-b control panel but the Pi did not restart. I’m away from home for another 3 weeks and would really like to be able to restart my setup.
