I have a fully synchronized Parity Ethereum node running on Ubuntu 16 I tried to find a straight answer on how to enable the node to accepts remote RPC calls from a specific client but could not find any. I use the following command:

parity --mode active --tracing off --pruning fast --db-compaction ssd --cache-size 1024 

Also, I would really like to know how to run it in the background, as now I have to connect via SSH and keep the connection running. Thanks everybody

According to the docs, you must simply add:


where [APIs] is a comma-delimited list of API names. Possible names are: all, safe, debug, web3, net, eth, pubsub, personal, signer, parity, parity_pubsub, parity_accounts, parity_set, traces, rpc, secretstore, shh, shh_pubsub. You can also disable a specific API by putting '-' in the front, example: all,-personal.
