Node-red to redis server running on NON localhost

I'm looking for a way to send MQTT received data to a Redis database instance that isn't running on localhost. I have looked at the contrib nodes out there and don't see a solution. Does anyone have any luck doing this?


Hi, @kingkong9001, welcome to the forum

I haven't used redis but I see that node-red-contrib-redis has a config for setting the server. Does that not work if the server is remote?

Correct, it doesn't work, it only connects to localhost.

So I'm looking for someone who might have gotten it to work or some other solution to communicate with remote redis server.

What happens when you try it with a remote connection? Are there any errors in the node-red log?
Have you checked with another client that the redis server is accessible from the machine running node-red
