 To have Remote Console on VRM working, your web browser and the GX Device need to have a connection between them. This connection is designed such that it doesn't need any special configuration or opening up of firewalls in almost all situations. The 0.1% of situations where it doesn't work out of the box are, for example, large corporate networks with special security, or long range expensive satellite or radio supported networks, such as seen in rural areas of Africa and other remote areas. To have Remote Console on VRM working, your web browser and the GX Device need to have a connection between them.

-When Remote Console on VRM is enabled, the GX Device will open and maintain a connection to any of the servers pointed to by supporthosts.victronenergy.com. Which currently resolves to two IP addresses (84.22.107.120 and 84.22.108.49), and likely more in the future. The technology used is ssh, and it will try to connect using port 22, 80 and 443, only one of them needs to work. The reason for it to try all three is that on most networks one of them will be allowed by the local firewall.+When Remote Console on VRM is enabled, the GX Device will open and maintain a connection to any of the servers pointed to by supporthosts.victronenergy.com.

 Once connected to one of the supporthost servers, that reverse ssh tunnel is waiting to be connected from someone needing the connection. Which can be your browser, or a Victron engineer since this same technology is used for the Remote Support functionality; for more information see above. Once connected to one of the supporthost servers, that reverse ssh tunnel is waiting to be connected from someone needing the connection.
