# How to bind daemon to inbound/outbound listening port on ubuntu

I would like to connect simplewallet or the GUI to a remote daemon

In my remote compute instance, how would I bind the daemon to the right ports?

Net service bound to 0.0.0.0:18080

Core RPC server initialized OK on port: 18081

There is the core port and the rpc server port, but they are only accessible on localhost

Also, can you detail any other considerations with regard to privacy that this introduces?

Finally, make sure you launch bitmonerod with the --restricted-rpc parameter to make sure folks don't mine on your node or anything.
• Thanks for the comment about restricted-rpc! – Tom Mar 29 '17 at 2:35
