Hi,

I want to be able to connect to my home network when I'm out and about on my laptop visiting clients, etc. I assumed that I would just use VPN but after doing a search and some reading I'm pretty sure that this probably wouldn't be the best way.

Can anyone suggest the best way for me to connect to my main mac? FTP? Can I just set it up as a server on my mbp using the IP address?

Pretty in the dark here so any pointers gratefully recvd!

Thanks

Happy Halloween!

Thanks Marty = that's what I do to connect at the moment locally - just wasn't sure if it would work across the internet.

Now - will it be secure? Can I use SSH in anyway?

It's a bit over my head too lol

And another question:

If my mac at homes goes into sleep - will trying to connect to it through TCP/IP wake it up?

Cheers
