Accessing server remotely through internet?


Hi,

how does one access my own server remotely from somewhere else through the internet?
Do I need to run another piece of software to do that? ( which? )

Have a DSL connection at home, with DHCP. So I guess my IP keeps changing, but .......

get a dynamic dns provider to give you a domain name like myserver.noip.com (also dyndns.org, dynu.com etc...) and then use whatever remote access method you fancy. personally i'd say juist use ssh might you misht want a full VPN which isn't too hard to set up, e.g. openvpn.net

google for SSH/man ssh, that gives you a way to login to a remote machine from the terminal.

Aslong as you know your IP address it doesn't matter whether your IP is dynamic as you can connect with ssh -l <username> <ip address>. Using a dynamic DNS service just means you can always connected with ssh -l <username> <same_hostname_each_time> and the hostname will update periodically to reflect your new IP address.

Which device are you using to connect to the internet? a router? if so your ip address will probably show as 192.168.1.?

you can find your ip address by

su -
pass
ifconfig

if this is the case you will need to login to your router and forward the port 22 (think this is right for SSH) to the local IP address of the machine you want to connect to.

you can also look into VNC which gives you a remote desktp to work in, or forwarding x through SSH so you can open x applications from a remote machine

This Article may be of use to you, particularly the part of SSH which will allow remote access to your linux server through the internet or your local area network. It is available here .
