Sorry if this is in the wrong place: moderators, please feel free to move. I am using Vine Server on my iMac at home and Chicken of the VNC on my MacBook for a remote desktop. For SFTP file transfering, I'm using RBrowser and Fetch. All work fine on my LAN while at home- that is, using my iMac's DHCP IP address. My problem is I can't connect while I'm away from home, on any of the apps. Yes, I tuned off all my firewalls (iMac, MacBook and my router) to see if that was the problem. So, we can skip the port forwarding issues. I must be missing something- what do I use to access my home network while away? I've tried my WAN IP and it doesn't get me to where I'll be forwarded on the correct ports. Oh, and I've tried using a Static IP and/or NAT forwarding to the iMac. Any suggestions?
