How do you guys connect to your server remotely if you not at home?  How easy is it to set up?

I tend to use TeamViewer to connect to an always-on desktop and then connect to the server via it.  My fall back though is running OpenVPN on the server and connecting to it instead (Due to a policy enforced on my laptop, I am unable to connect to a VPN on it -> hence TeamViewer as my primary)

Is it safe to run TeamViewer all the time?  I remember a year or two ago about some hack thing.  I assume there is a docker for it.

VPN for the win. Super easy. Either use the docker version easier to install because of the instructions provided by spaceinvader. Or the Plugin version that works like a charm, giving you access with the array stopped.

I used to do an option with a reverwey proxy a opening a port. But it's not as sexure as the VPN plugin.

There you have it my man.

Also check for Open VPN server by@peter_sm

The plugin version works better. There's no instructions but all you need is open a port in your router and get a dinamic DNS service for your public IP.

Look at the video and you will get the idea with the plugin version.

That was gonna be my next question is there a plugin as I only have 6 sata ports and HDD's are not really cheap here so I don't run docker's or VM's would love too but don't only plugins.

So @squirrellydw if you so use the plugin some guidance as to how/if you got it right please.

 

Thank You
