Note regarding issues related to remote control operations from Opera — "remote edit link not working in opera" (OSM-Talk). --ceyockey 16:00, 24 December 2010 (UTC)

Bottom line: To make JOSM remote control work, check Allow Cross Network Navigation here: opera:config#Cross%20Network (copy and paste to your address bar)


Can we remove the "Experimental" specification may change message? Or at least put it further down the page. -- Harry Wood 13:58, 4 January 2011 (UTC)

it did not change the last years and is contained in core. With the availability of the version command a change in the protocol version is easy to detect by the clients. Removed experimental. --Stephankn 19:08, 7 January 2011 (UTC)


It appears that the remote control plug-in does not work on Linux ... but that is not a great surprise, really. --Ceyockey 05:15, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

I cannot confirm this. The remote control feature (it's no longer a plugin) works well on my Ubuntu machines. --Tordanik 09:55, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

Disabled by default

I found it disabled, not enabled, by default as of 2017-04-02 (stable version 11826). Jidanni (talk) 07:10, 24 April 2017 (UTC)

Actual working example of GET /version

GET http://localhost:8111/version works too.
