Originating from the term system console, which meant a device with a text input and a screen to read the replies of the system on, remote console is a Command Line Interface (CLI) which allows for the user’s input in form of text commands and outputs the system’s response via text without the need to use the system’s screen and keyboard, as it’s accessible remotely.
Simply put, remote console is a tool allowing for advanced control of the system using commands.
There are different ways you can access your remote console, the fastest is by clicking on the local or remote IP on your worker's profile. Local access through local IP will only work if you are in the same local network, while remote access through remote IP will only work through minerstat dashboard. You can find more details here.
Remote console is most useful in cases where accessing just the dashboard menus isn’t enough, primarily troubleshooting. You can also use it to get a live feed of the miner output, minerstat node output - this will list responses to the actions you or automation performs on the rig, like starting mining, applying ClockTune profiles, etc.
First, you need to open the remote console, this can be performed via local network connection, a remote connection, or SSH as explained here.
