How would I safely open up a raspberry pi to the internet?
@DigitalMisfit so long you’re behind a router, it is safe.
If you don't have a static IP at home you will need to use something like tor or a vpn tunnel to a vps with a static IP. Which defeats the purpose a little, but you hold your data so still better.
Some basic server hardening should protect the pi however. No password logins on ssh, firewall, fail 2 ban. I'm sure I'm missing things 😊
@robjloranger I set set a static IP per device from the router settings
That will not be visible outside your local network.
Your ISP likely assigns a dynamic IP address for your modem.
