SSH vs Change IP of Dashboard for Remote Dashboard Access

Is it better to SSH into a machine to access the Dashboard remotely, or is it better to change the IP of the Dashboard. Also, I’m a bit confused about how do any of the above and access the dashboard after eg. changing the IP, so could someone help explain to me how I would do the above methods?

Are you talking about accessing the dashboard locally? or away from home as well? If your talking about away from home its not a good idea to open it up to public its better to setup a vpn to access your local network to view your dashboard.

I mean locally, connected to the same network.

I’m sure this is answered elsewhere… However, it came up a little while ago on the forum:
