TCP Tunnel - Control4 Composer from remote


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


This is all the steps to connect from remote to your Control4 Director using Domotz Pro:

Control4 Instruction

  1. Select the Control4 Director 
  2. Go to "Connect" tab
  3. Click on "Create a TCP tunnel"
  4. Insert the Control4 Director TCP Port. By default "5021"
  5. Wait to have the tunnel setup
  6. You get two informations:
    • Host
    • Port
  7. Run as administrator the Control4.bat script (see attachment bellow) and enter the HOST and PORT previously provided.
  8. Open Control4 Composer and create a connection to the local address (it will be forwarded to the Domotz TCP Tunnel).



Let us know if you have any problem.

Hi @AlexLewis


I apologize the delay in responding. 


They may changed the port to connect to the controller or the local port forward is not working in your computer.


I will investigate if something has changed, in the meantime you can use our newer feature, the VPN on Demand which will work for sure.


If you need assistance connecting to the VPN on Demand please reach out our support here: support@domotz.com we will assist you.


Kind regards,
