Hyper-V Remote Management via Internet

I have Microsoft Hyper-V Server 2008 R2 installed on a sever in a Data Center and I want to administer it remotely from home.
At home I have a Windows 7 PC connected to the Internet via a router.

I installed the remote management components and I was able to access Hyper-V on a server in my local network but when I try the same with the server from the Data Center I get the message: “Cannot connect to the RPC Service on computer <IP address>. Make sure your IPC service is running”.
I used the instructions from http://code.msdn.microsoft.com/HVRemote.

I believe the server from the Data Center wants to communicate back with my PC – but my PC is behind a firewall (so it has a NAT address like 192.168.2.5).
Do I have to redirect some ports from my router to my internal PC?

You have to VPN to the datacenter first.

The server is connected directly to the internet with no router or hardware firewall.
So there is no way to administer the Hyper-V from it unless I add a harware VPN?

Let me try another approach.
All I want is to add a virtual machine then to start / stop it.
Do you have the powershell commands for it?
I can remote desktop into the server.
