Need to disable pop-up blockers for Remote Access to work properly



What dashboard are you using? (Web, iOS, Android)

Web, Ios

What OS? (Jessie, Wheezy)

What Model Pi?

Please describe the bug / issue. Attaching any relevant screenshots would be very helpful!

I am trying to access my Raspberry Pi using the remote access feature. I can access it and load up the screen on my Iphone as shown in the pic, though it’s not really usable.

I tried accessing it using the web dashboard. After a few seconds, it says “connected”, but doesn’t show any kind of remote screen. I am not on the same network as my Pi right now. What am I doing wrong? :unamused:

Also, a side-issue: I can see the CPU temp. widget on my mobile, but not in the web dashboard. Any idea how to add it there?


Ok I understood what the problem is. myDevices tries to open the remote screen in a new tab and Chrome blocks it by default if you’ve set popup blocker on. So we have to allow popups for the domain and it’ll then work fine.


Good catch Amol!

I hate to think of how many times I’ve been stymied by our friend the popup blocker.
