Hey guys, I have been using jarvee for a while but I feel there are still a lot to learn for me to fully make use of it. A simple one is the fact that it only works when my embedded browser is connected to internet. Is there a way to run it on the background without my computer is on or being connected to internet? Because I know other paid applications work that way.
With any sort of automation software, it has to be running 24/7 on your computer, and connected to the internet. This means that if your computer shuts off, or your connection to the wifi is interrupted for any reason, then it will stop performing any tasks.
In the beginning of my journey, I used my personal PC, and left it on 24/7, connected to the charger and wifi. This was a TERRIBLE IDEA, as it destroyed my laptop’s battery, used lots of electricity, and I missed lots of tasks because the computer would restart for update, freeze/crash, and my wifi wasn’t very reliable (especially as I was traveling at the time).
You pay $X a month through a VPS hosting service, and then you use a Remote Viewer App (I use Microsoft Remote Desktop) to access it through your own computer. You can even access it through your phone if you download the Microsoft Remote Desktop App.
If you have any more questions about your VPS, feel free to ask me here! Good luck!
I am glad found this chat. However, there is something that is not clear for me.
I am in Japan at the moment without regular access to internet.
With the VPS do you still need to be connected to internet?
You need an active internet connection to connect to a remote location. You can install Microsoft Remote Desktop on your phone and use WiFi hotspots to access the vps. This app works like a charm, but there are several others out there I haven’t tried yet, so I can’t tell you about those, maybe someone else on here can.
I’d still recommend to use a normal desktop/laptop computer to access a vps, but when you’re in a pickle like you’re in right now, this is a viable solution!
You don’t need to have internet for the VPS to be turned on. The VPS is independent to your own internet connection, You only need internet to access the server. Once it is fully setup you do not need to access the VPS (unless you want to check things or w/e).
Me too i know exactly the problem, 24h/7day, now i have a VPS, i suggest a use a Vps respect the requirment of Jarvee Install, if is cheap, is slow, and you would like to take the computer and throw it out the window
