First I should say I'm a beginner and just finding my way around node-red
I have written a flow which reads data (messages) from a udp port and after some filtering then displays them in a table on the UI dashboard - this bit works fine.
I would like to access my table outside of my home network, I've read about the various security issues of opening up ports etc. so, as I have my own web site (cp panel hosted) I was wondering if node red could be made to write the table to a page on my site.
Is this possible? if so some tips of how to get started would be appreciated
There are several ftp nodes on flows.nodered.org - hopefully one will let you upload some data to your site in a format you can then just browse... you may want/need to reformat it locally first before uploading.
This is the node I'm using https://flows.nodered.org/node/node-red-contrib-ftp
Since reading your earlier post I'm looking at using an external ftp program to send the files produced by node-red to my web site.
Allway Sync, which I already have installed, seems to fit the bill, it offers sftp and automatic sync of files from local drive to remote destination at a pre-determined time. I haven't had chance to try it yet, but it looks promising
Ok, just for reference for other users, I finished up using WinSCP ftp program.
I had to get SSH private and public keys from my web site provider, using these keys I get a secure ftp connection.
WinSCP has a "watch folder" function, any changes made in the local folder are sync to the remote folder - all seems to be be working well.
Thanks to all those that have replied to my question, this now wraps it up
