Security Considerations

  • This is still a developer prototype and is intended only as a demo to get people started.
  • It will have the same access privileges as your user account
  • The login and password you specify will be stored on disk, so should be different, but as strong as your account password.
  • Don’t leave it running if you aren’t using it


  • Run iPhone Remote (Requires OS X 10.4)
  • Choose a web login/password
  • Open to https://<YOUR COMPUTER IP HERE>:5010 from your iPhone
    • If you want to access your computer from outside of your local network, you may need to configure your router or firewall to support it.
