Hi, I wasn't really sure which sub-forum to post this in... I am currently living away from home (overseas) and for various reasons want to connect to my home network in order to route my downloads through my home internet plan. I assume this is possible and I also assume this is what a VPN is, please correct me if I am wrong. I have a couple of questions though; 1. I'm pretty sure I didn't have this set up before I left home. Can I somehow check by scanning the IP address of my home? 2. Am I able to set this up remotely or do I have to get someone at home to set it up? 3. Is it possible to encrypt the connection from my computer to my home network? The data being downloaded to my home network wont be encrypted but I would like to encrypt it from my home network to my computer. 4. If I could set this up, would it mean that the IP address that I'm currently using would be hidden and the IP address of my home network would be the one visible to everyone when I am browsing? Cheers.
