Once I get a static IP with comcast, what do i need to remotely access computers?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Comcast will be installing Business Class HSI in a week or so. Once I have static IP what do i need to set up to access my home network remotely? I'd imaging i'd have to open a port on the router but what about username and password? I'd like to be able to access files on my sig rig as well as another box that is only wirelessly connected that has movies and TV (not a server, just a box with lots of movies and tv shows).

Any number of VPN Server/Program should work fine. (I've used OpenVPN with great success)
> Install Server end inside network and make key sets
> Install client on laptop or make a portable USB to carry with you. Copy keys to laptop/USB
> Forward router ports to server

From there you just need to make sure it works. Test from outside your own network if possible, things can act weird otherwise.
