I have a LAN with several computers behind a router on a dynamic IP address (Win and FreeBSD). I want to be able to reach several of them via VNC from outside the LAN.
I am thinking to get the CustomDNS service from DynDNS.com, and set one of my domain names to forward to my dynamic ip, using their update software to keep it current.
I think I can then connect to multiple computers via VNC by specifying the connection port on the forwarded domain.
Can anyone verify this? I am a bit of a novice with networking - I generally manage to keep mine running smoothly, but once you get into DNS and port manipulation, I am a bit out of my zone. I would like to be pretty sure this will work before starting to set it up.
I am also open to other ideas on how to do this. I need to be able to remote in (and make it really easy for my wife to do so) securely, and need one-click connections (like UltraVNC one click) to help other people with theirs, so I am thinking UltraVNC and DynDNS. However, definitely open to other ideas. Note that I won't be able to get Static IPs, so it will definitely have to be a solution that can handle my dynamic ip.
Thanks for the great answers. Are the plugins for uvnc, like the RC4 or AES plugins fairly secure?
