I have a Windows PC at home connected to the internet through a Linksys WRT 120N Wireless Router. I'm trying to access my home network and the internet through my computer from a remote site. I have heard that I could set my computer up as a proxy and connect to it through a web browser (by typing the IP into the URL?) or I could set up my computer for remote desktop, log into it, and basically operate as though I was at my home computer.
What would be the easiest way to accomplish what I'm trying to do and how would I go about setting it up?
