Outside access through a router?


I have a computer at my school, but it is in a router. I have the actual IP address to the school, and my home computer, but how would I get it so I can connect to my computer through the IP address that the school uses?

Example Addresses:
Home: 68.64.65.111
School: 201.7.6.10
My computer in the school: 192.168.4.170

How could I get to my computer in the school with ssh, basically!

You'd need to forward the port(s) ssh uses from your router to the computer on your school's network. Then you would try to connect with ssh to the IP address of the router, which would then forward connections from that port to the machine you really wish to access.

The network admins at your school probably won't let you do this... but I guess you could try. You would need to forward port 22 to the machine you are running the ssh daemon on.

I see... But how is it outside servers know what computer to send data to for instance, web browsers? It reads the ip address as the school's main address, and not the computers address, so how does it know exactly which one to send all the data to? :/

The outside servers don't actually send the data to the individual machines. They send data to the router, which then passes the data to the computers that requested it.
