Connecting to LIRC server via lan

My current setup is Raspberry PI running lirc, which listens on or 9000. My Node-red runs on different machine.

I have installed node-red-contrib-lirc however it has no options to control to remote LIRC server from what I was able to find, it has controller node but controller node has only name field which seems to be irrelevant.

Is my installation broken or am I doing something fundamentaly wrong?
