Hello and welcome to LinuxQuestions,

Can you clarify a bit? What address is it that you need? Do you want to connect to your own computer/server from another location? Do you want to connect to someone elses computer/server? Is it your own WAN IP you want to find out?

Kind regards,

Eric

Hello,

If you have more than one computer you can set it up in your LAN locally. Or for that matter you can even connect using SSH to your localhost to try it out. VNC is considered pretty unsecure so if you're still in the process of looking for something to have remote control over another machine, then I'd look into NoMachine NX or TeamViewer.

I doubt that anyone here will give you SSH or VNC access to their machine(s).

Kind regards,

Eric

You could also try setting up a virtual machine in VirtualBox and setting the network adapter to "Host-Only".

This will at least allow for SSH; this is the way I've done it. I'm not sure about VNC, but it would probably be awfully slow under a VM, if it worked at all...

Hello,

No problem whatsoever. Hope your ISP has his problems solved. And how about yours? Did you find a solution that lets you try out remote desktop connections?

Kind regards,

Eric
