Remote Command List

Post by erre » Wed Apr 29, 2020 7:04 am

Hello, in addition to the

RESTART COMMAND

Code: Select all

http://VBOX_IP/cgi-bin/HttpControl/HttpControlApp?OPTION=1&Method=SystemRestart
can other commands be remotely executed ?
Any command that you have tried and working you can list it ?
They are also very useful for creating automations with Google Home with IFTTT :idea:
Thank you all !!!

Good morning, for example it would be nice to know how to turn on a TV channel with a command "http............"
It would be really fantastic to share all the possible remote commands "http: \\ ...." are all commands that can be used by google home combined with IFTTT
a lot of automatisms can be created
thanks !!!

With this methods you need something like server on your side, and static external ip.
I was thinking about some app that connects somewhere and waits for comands for example.
