I have a Server connected to a fixed IP on local LAN say 192.168.0.7
Now I just want to use some client software REMOTELY (outside the LAN) which simply requires me to type in IP address + user / password.
Now if my Router reports my current IP address as www.xxx.yyy.zzz
is THAT the address I should use and do I need to port forward anything -- The application is Vsphere NOT RDP as RDP needs me to connect to a WINDOWS machine (Real or VM inside tha LAN).
On the server I can access ANY of the running VM's from the Vpshere client.
I've actually "Poodlefaked" it so I can get my INTERNET IP address by starting the No-IP program from within any of the VMs at start up. This should allow mw to retrieve the current Internet IP address.
(No-IP - Dynamic DNS, Static DNS for Your Dynamic IP
The No-IP works fine for me --there are others you can use for similar functions when you have dynamic IP's.
