How to connect systems in private network with public network


Hi all,

Iam a new bee,
i have one doubt that is how can we actually connect a system in private network with the system in a public network using IP address

I have one system in private network (in my campus) i need to connect it with the system on public network (home) using IP address and communicate with each other

how can i do it or is there any other way of connecting these two systems more easily?

please respond to me,

Thanks
jeet

I think you'd have to do some port-forwarding on the campus network, which requires the network admin's approval and action.

Thanks ---sycamorex

Hi sycamorex

Thanks for replying

yes i was also thinking that option only....

i have doubt whether it works for application or not,

we have to connect one pc in private network (campus) with other pc (mostly a modem in our case)in public network.
Connection should be peer to peer like and we have to use C coding for establishing connection between this two systems

is it possible if we use port forwarding or is there any other way???

please reply us back

I don't think there's any other way as the private network in your campus is behind a router.

Is there access to the public network (assume you mean Internet) from your private LAN? For instance, are you connecting to say 'linuxquestions.org' from the private LAN? If so, then the router is probably passing at least WWW traffic, and you should be able to use that to establish a connection to any other Internet-connected IP.

Your question seems a bit vague. Are you asking about the possibility of traversing network devices, or how to implement some specific kind of service, or....?
