How can I access my home desktop with laptop at work?


Dear my mentors

I'm curious about some remote access.
How can I access my home Linux Desktop(which is Gentoo and using DHCP), with my laptop(which is Windows10 and Wireless Connection) at work?

If I have to change some settings, something like "I can't do that with Windows laptop, just tell me. And If there are some articles or tutorials for me to read, Please give me! even just Link! I'll read and study!

Thanks again! for lots of your help!

Teamviewer free version can be installed in Linux and Windows - version mismatches can be a little cumbersome, Windows version from my experience always precedes Linux.
For remote access with ssh you need to open a port in your router, for a little added security mask the port instead of using the default.

EDIT: Windows Powershell also has a module that installs cmdline Ubuntu, and from there you can also ssh.

You should check with the people in charge of security (if there is a dept.) as you may be breaking company rules and it would be a sack-able offence.
When I was contracting I liked to do the same thing, but not all companies allowed it; indeed quite a few would not allow the use of a personal laptop on their network.

I second dave@burn-it.co.uk's advice. Clear this with your IT department.

If they okay it, you might also take a look at using a VNC. http://www.linuxtopia.org/HowToGuide...x_Windows.html

I believe that you can't connect to the Windows 10 machine unless it's Windows 10 Pro. Windows 10 Home Doesn't have remote desktop capabilities that's why Microsoft tries to sele you the Pro edition.

Another way of adding a SSH client to Windows is to use the Google Chrome browser with the Secure Shell Extension.
Assuming company permission and an appropriately configured company exit firewall, there are still networking hurdles.
As stated by WFV, you will need your home router to be forwarding the incoming traffic to a suitably configured sshd daemon running on your home Linux desktop. This will likely also need opening up access on your home Linux firewall.
If you are using DHCP on your home setup, then your home external IP address is likely to be updated from time to time. You may want to consider setting up a dynamic DNS address for your home Linux and have it automatically update, so that it can still be contacted if the IP address changes.

I wouldn't want to load a web browser just to get remote access!, especially one owned by Google.
A web browser is just, if not more, as likely to be banned.

In the odd event I need to access my computer at home from work, I use TeamViewer. You don't even have to install it on your work machine, as long as the TeamViewer site is available in the office. For me, it is.
