Re: Remotely Connecting to my Home Network

If there are a reasonably small number of files, the easy way is to park them on google drive, icloud, microsoft's onedrive, etc., so you can access them from anywhere and the rest is someone else's problem.  The hard way is to set up dynamic DNS, port forwarding, and some sort of secure vpn on your computer or at least an encrypted ssh login for the file transfers.  And then hope it doesn't go down while you are away.
