Remote router connection and IP address

Specs: Windows 64

If I remotely connect to my home router can I connect from that WAN without my remote address
being exposed? I'm trying to connect to my work server but only my home address connection
is allowed

Home routers are usually limited to forward ports from the public IP addr to an local network addr..

Can you you connect to a device in your network first and from that device connect to your company IP addr?

As a note: your company should consider VPN connections from remote users.

Many thanks for the response, while I could connect to another device in my LAN the subsequent connection would reveal the originating IP unless I setup a transparent server (squid) which I'm considering though I was hoping might be another solution. I'm all
ears! thanks again

Why would the subsequent connection reveal the original IP addr? I assume the home device sets up a connection to the company where the public IP is used. The data is passed on to your remote connection.

You could use a Remote Desktop Connection to your home PC and establish a connection from the home PC to the company.
Response will depending on your available bandwidth .
