How to access nagios and cacti from remote location


Hi,

I have installed cacti and nagios in my office system 192.168.1.101 and I have mapped this IP in firewall to one of the public IP say 61.16.232.195. I need to access the nagios and cacti by giving the above mentioned public IP from my home with my acer laptop. However any other users from any location should not be able to access nagios and cacti by giving this Public IP. Only I should be able to access from my acer laptop from any location. How can I do it?? Should I need to bind the MAC address of my acer laptop??

the MAC address will be irrelevant, you need to restrict it to your source IP address, or possibly better is to use password authentication in apache, so the right person can access from anywhere
