How to set up my network for outside access
Posted on 2004-09-21
I have two computers with WinXP Pro on the network, using Linksys router. I want to get in from the outside.
One computer (1) is for remote access, with multiple accounts. Another one (2) will host web applications.
I think that my best bet is to set up a VPN for access from the outside. That way, I will be able to get to both computers with Remote Access, once I am connected to VPN. For web hosting response from computer (2), I think I need to tell the Linksys router to forward certain ports (i.e. 8080) to computer (2).
Am I correct, and is there anything special I need to do?
