Running app-server locally and connect to compute on AWS

Hi there!

I was hoping someone could walk me through running the rhino app server locally but connect to the compute server hosted on AWS. This is because on my workflow where I switch between mac and windows laptops depending on where I am working from.

I imagine there is a config file somewhere where I need to provide the URL to the compute server and an API key…

Further to this what would be the.js file (in the app-server folder) I would launch locally using node?

Thanks in advance!

Doing this isn’t a use case that we’ve considered supporting. The main issue being the remote compute server doesn’t have a good and secure way to communicate to your local appserver. There are ways to do this, but it requires exposing your local network, hence why we do not suggest you try this.
