DaRemote Q&A[EN]


ssh keys format

DaRemote supports legacy PEM and the default private key/public key file format after OpenSSH v7.8. Other unsupported file formats need to be converted to such formats.
If the private key file cannot be selected in the file picker UI, remove the file extension and try again.

You can also generate key pairs directly in the app and deploy the keys to the server.

Database import and export

The database can be exported to the /storage/emulated/0/Documents/daremote directory along with the current settings.

On Android 11+ systems, the exported database file may not be visible on the import page due to read and write access restrictions. If this is the case, click the choose button in the top right and navigate to the path in the pop-up app to select the db file.

How to show CPU temperature

On the Overview page, click on USERS of the server to switch the CPU temperature display.

If the temperature display shows “-“, it means that thermal files was not found on the server. You can run the following cammand in the server to check:

cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/temp


cat /sys/devices/virtual/thermal/thermal_zone*/temp

In general, the thermal files can be found in the /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/ path. If the temp file exists but there is still no CPU temperature displayed in DaRemote, please send me the output of cat /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone*/type. If you find them in a different path, please kindly share the path with me.

If there is no thermal files on your OS, you still can install the im-sensors software on the server, as DaRemote v3.1.0 onwards supports temperature querying through the “sensors” command.

How to view all Docker containers in a server

Unlike adding Docker containers to the main page as described above, the details page will display all created containers and allow you to control their running status.

  1. Select a server that has Docker containers on the main page.
  2. Tap on any of the CPU, Memory, Storage, or Network icon to enter the details page.
  3. Wait for the fifth small dot to appear next to the title.
  4. Scroll to the end to see the list of Docker containers.

If there are a lot of containers on the server, it may take a long time to display. If it doesn’t show up for a long time, try entering the details page again.
