Networking general questions.
Looking at this device…
I’m assuming it is a basic rpi with your custom OS. And a few security upfits.
Would I be correct in the following assumptions—
- It will use default gateway routing for remote routing say over a VPN.
- Ip chain functionality via Linux will be accessible for config.
- Other special low cpu/low memory software can be added.. IE FTP/TFTP..

Hi @radartech - thanks for your networking questions!
The TinyPilot Voyager 2 is based around the Raspberry Pi 4B and runs Raspberry Pi OS Lite (currently Buster with a move to Bullseye under development). You can enable SSH access to the base system as required.
It will use default gateway routing for remote routing say over a VPN.
TinyPilot only works on the local network by default. The most popular option for remote access is to use a third-party tool but it is possible to install and configure many supported VPN clients directly on your TinyPilot device if you prefer a self-hosted approach.
Ip chain functionality via Linux will be accessible for config.
I don't believe
ipchainsis supported anymore but you can install
iptables(or one of the alternative interfaces) to configure the kernel's built-in packet filter.
Other special low cpu/low memory software can be added.. IE FTP/TFTP..
The TinyPilot Voyager 2 was designed to be used only as an IP KVM but it is possible to install other compatible software on it if you wish to do so.
I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions.
