Have you reviewed any of the products available like logmein or hamachi, tightvnc?

BTW you only ip forward if you want a particular service to access a particular host. Otherwise you open the port(s) which will allow that service to access all hosts.

Yes, instead of you "connecting" to the remote server , you can have the remote server always trying to connect out in a loop(or set timer) to your own WAN IP you can therefore connect to it locally on your PC. It wont take up too many resources on the server IP, well actually you become the "local" server seeing as the remote PC is trying to connect to you.

There should be commercial apps that can do this, but also are plenty of "dodgier" apps.

If you are going out of the office to your home what does the office isp config have to do with anything??? It certainly isn't blocking outgoing traffic.

The config that is important is what you have at home.

Can you port forward in your home router?
Can you open port 21 on your home router?

Answer wanderer........

Can you port forward in your home router?
Can you open port 21 on your home router?

I'm not sure what you mean when you say "I have a router/modem connection where IP forwarding is turned off by my ISP."

I've never heard of an ISP doing this. They might block ports (although I confess I've never heard of that either) but I doubt they'd block forwarding.

For instance, they can't block http or you wouldn't be able to surf. If you can ftp out from your home/work, then you can ftp in. The traffic would hit your router and be forwarded by port from your router, not your ISP. I think you're confused and if you can't make sense of what we're saying, it might be worth your while to pay a professional to set you up.

I have two separate port forwards setup on my SOHO router at home. One for ssh and the other for RDC. When I go to ssh into my UNIX PC at home from work, it hits my router, my router sees it and forwards that port to the PC I specified in the forward. The same applies to my RDC sessions.

Unless your ISP completely blocks certain ports, there's no reason you can't do the same thing I have.

If your ISP does indeed block certain ports (like ftp) then I highly recommend you look at other ISP's and go with one that doesn't block ports.
