Hosted in a data center, that has its own connection to the outside world?The virtual server is hosted in a data center. I'm not looking to share files or database. I'm looking to share the internet connection/IP of my PC with the virtual server that is hosted in the data center
Yes. When I use the virtual server, I want the IP to be displayed as my home network's IP. Not the data center's IPHosted in a data center, that has its own connection to the outside world?
Unsure what you're actually wanting to do.
Gotta ask...why?Yes. When I use the virtual server, I want the IP to be displayed as my home network's IP. Not the data center's IP
I need access to things that only my home IP can have access to.Gotta ask...why?
Trying to do this circumvents some of the main benefits of having this server in a data center.
What is this server used for?
I'm going to have to bow out of this one for now.I need access to things that only my home IP can have access to.
I want my virtual server IP to be displayed as my home IP, can you elaborate on which part is confusing?I'm going to have to bow out of this one for now.
I still have NO idea what you're trying to do, or trying to circumvent.
And trying to circumvent some other resources restrictions will quickly lead to this being closed.
I get what you're trying to do.I want my virtual server IP to be displayed as my home IP, can you elaborate on which part is confusing?
I have services that I use which locks to my home IP. I can't access it with any other IPI get what you're trying to do.
I don't get the why.
What difference does the public IP address make?
I have a tp-link archer c4000.How much control over the virtual server do you have. Can you actually load VPN software on the server and can you manipulate the routing on the server to make it work.
From your description you basically want to somehow assign you home IP address to a server that resides in a data center.
Going to be very messy to get it to work. I would first try to do this with a router but it might take a fairly powerful device because you likely are going to have to use openvpn to get it to pass though the remote data center. It all depends on how much traffic you plan to pass.
So you would need a router that has a VPN server function, this is actually fairly common on better routers just be sure it can host OPENVPN and not just IPSEC. You would then load client software in the virutal server at the data center. You would need to find a way to assign a fixed IP address from your lan subnet.
Next you would need to put in port forwarding rules on the router so that the traffic from other machines gets sent to this IP you assigned to server on the remote side of the vpn.
You can do this with a pc but I would recommend you use linux and not windows. Microsoft does a very poor job of letting you use a pc as a router. I suspect it can be done if you work at it hard enough but they keep changing this stuff. Unless you have performance issues I would try to use a actual router to do this.
Crap, that sounds like a lot of work.It should be possible but you are going to have to test the performance. Even though that has a fast cpu it is still nothing compared to even many cell phones.
You are going to have to read the manual for details. The part that tends to be tricky is going to be assigning a fixed IP to the remote machine. It might be possible to do it in the client settings. Then you have to hope the router is smart enough to port forward traffic to a vpn connection.
You are doing multiple things that most people don't do so it is hard to say how much support the router has. TPlink tends to be better than many. I am not sure but that router may also support third party firmware if you get stuck. Third party firmware can do much more because it is based on linux but you put even more burden on the router cpu.
Thereby potentially exposing your personal PC to the outside world, and all that entails.Is there a program that I can download which makes my pc like a VPN and
