joey-world Posted June 8, 2013 Share Posted June 8, 2013 Ok let's begin. So I want to setup an SSH server at home. I know how to do that, simple in almost all steps, and whatever question can be found on the internet. While the setup is easy for me, what I can't completely understand is how the hell I will connect to it from afar? I will try to give the best explanation in regards to my issue in the following list: -SSH server setup: done -NAT firewall setup: done -Client server setup: done!! -How the hell I will connect from another network with my laptop: not so good. I know I need the Public IP address, I know my router is configured to route the incoming connection to the server. My point is, every time my Public IP address changes I'm done, there's no way I can figure out my Public IP address. What is the solution to this problem? How can I get some kind of (secure) update about my current Public IP? I already try to look everywhere. I found solutions like Dyndns, etc, But that's just too much trouble because I don't want to have a DNS since it can be easier to find for potential hackers than my IP (I think) Second of all. How can I ensure that my server is protected? I had to open a port on my NAT firewall, which is like opening an invitation for someone skilled to hack into my network. Even though my Internet is not broadcasting, I have WPA2 AES encryption (the best it can get on my router) I still feel a little unsure about the security of the open port. What are your thoughts guys? Thank you so much for your help. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
