    remote desktop, static ip, router


    Hello,

    Here is my situation...I have a computer that has a static IP on a specific port on a network. I use this computer to connect to a PLC (Programming Logic Controller). When I am off site, I want to be able to connect to the PC and work with the PLC. I believe if I install a router on the specific port and static IP that I was assigned I will then be able to create my own VPN. This will allow for extra security as well as a way to set up more IP addresses from this newly installed router. I prefer not to use NAT. Is this at all possible and if not what else should I try?

    Thank you,
    Mike

    Yes, I suspect it's possible.
    I have seen remote desktops used: tightvnc / x11vnc.
    I've seen people set static IPs for their ethernets.
    With Linux, I've seen computers turned into routers.

    Linux is very powerful when it comes to networking.
    It doesn't really limit a person.
    You may want to read more about networking in Linux, though.

    Your past posts seem to be focused on VNC.
    You may want to read the manuals that come with each VNC server and client you use.
