I apologize in advance, I know this has probably been covered numerous times before so if someone could provide me a link where this was discussed I wont waste anymore of peoples time. I have been searching this site but I haven't really found what I am looking for. Also, please let me know if I posted this in the wrong forum. What I am looking for is the best way to access my home server while away from home, whether that be from my work laptop (Dell), MBP, iPad or iPhone. I have installed a Mac Mini Server as my home server and I am using it more as a media center than anything else. I stream movies and such to my Apple TV. I already know the server addition is overkill for what I need but I have already bought it and am using it so that point is moot. I am not an idiot with computers but I am also not a tech geek, I simply want to tunnel into my home server from the outside and view files, movies, photos and such. Eventually as I get more sophisticated I hope to control more but for now this what I need. What is the best S/W to accomplish this? Do I need some sort of DNS service? Further info if needed, I am using Airport Extreme and I have Comcast for my internet. I have been fooling around with a free version of iTeleport but it seems pretty clumsy, it lets you view your desktop but I was hoping for more. Thanks in advance for your help.
