    Hey guys,

    I am brand spanking new to the forum, but I have been here many many times so welcome all!

    Heres what I am attempting to accomplish. I have a dell p3 356mb mem, 60gb hdd 2 NIC RED/GREEN ETH0/ETH1 3com nic cards. I have my internet gateway plugged strait into my ipcop box, then out to a dell powerswitch to network my win xp box, and my ubuntu desktop machine, and soon for my wlan and a compaq proliant server (When I get my problems resolved). These are basically my tech specs, and if you need more details, I can provide no problem.

    I am basically wanting to know if any of you guys have used IPCop, and if you have, I am wanting to figure out how to access my computers on my network remotely.

    I do have Zerina installed on my IPCop box for OpenVPN, and I am actually able to remote access my IPCop box from anywhere I go in the world. I am wanting to set it up where I can also access my other computers on my network remotely as well. All of my computers have a SET IP address coming from my IPCop box, but I can't figure out how to login, or connect to my other machines. I unfortunitly am very new with networking/firewalls, but know my hardware and catch on pretty quick. I have read quite a few threads that told me I need to setup DynDNS.org account, and enable port forwarding ETC. I did setup an account with DYNDNS, and played with port forwarding, but I am lost on where to go next.

    Can someone please advise?

    Thank you so much!!!!

    Man, thanks so much for the information! I did get DynDNS setup and all, but I just dont know how to get to my other computers.

    On IPCOP I have 2 computers setup on a fixed lease:
    192.168.1.11
    192.168.1.12

    Ones a winxp machine, and the other is ubuntu. Where do I go to type in my ip addresses so that I can access these machines?

    I read the guides, and they were VERY helpful, but they don't tell me how to access my machines now :/

    Im sorry to be such an idiot man, im just new to all of this :(

    Take care,

    Brandon

    I mean't, where do I go to access my machines remotely? I have openVPN installed and setup great! Im able to access my firewall remotely, but not my other machines :(

    Do I use internet explorer from my remote machine or what?
