Can other devices' web server be relayed?
Sometimes legacy devices have a means of being configured through a web interface. However, this is often only possible from within that specific network due to firewall settings and security concerns (for example no proper credentials on the app or only http). In many cases the device is a black box so no access is granted. But qbee can be used as a secure VPN gateway or relay proxy to make this device accessible anyhow. For a detailed description of how to do this please see this description about ssh port forwarding
Use qbee as a VPN gateway to route other devices local services on any port.
By using a secure proxy and a VPN gateway legacy devices can be made accessible through ssh port forwarding even though they are in a buidling or on a factory floor and behind a local closed network. qbee has this VPN gateway functionality built in to solve this problem in a secure and simple way.
Below is a diagram that shows a device running qbee in a local network (the bulb device called qbee 1). It is used as a gateway using its VPN to allow "Machine 1" to be accessible from the outside by relaying the "Machine 1" port 80 (http) through its secure VPN tunnel. "Machine 1" does not need any software installed. As long as it has a web interface or other service on any port this can be made accessible from any desktop that runs qbee-connect with full security and audit log who logged into that device.
qbee can help to securely administrate devices that never were intended for the wide internet
In case a local network is deliberately closed for outside access (a very common and smart strategy) all devices behind this network cannot be reached from the outside. This is intended behaviour. But in many cases service technicians or specific administrators need to have access anyhow. Here the qbee device can act as VPN gateway and help to achieve exactly this. You can then use qbee-connect from your local machine to access this web page or service.
