How to access home server from outside cafe?

I have a Unifi 100 fiberhome service and have set up a simple webserver in my home Wifi network.

I want to access this server when I'm outside at a cafe or at work. 

How do I do that?

Hi @Squidster ,

 

Sounds like you can set up remote connection for your server and you can access it anywhere.

How to do that dynamic IP? I cant seem to ping this dynamic IP from outside.

The public IP from the modem is different from what is being reported with whatismyip.com.

At least when I can ping, I can setup port forwarding. Now I can't.

Two ways to access. One by setting VPN on the router at the office. Second by using Dynamic DNS. You need to register for free or pay site for this feature. You also need to install webserver at your office from microsoft or apache. The easiest one by using WAMP server. A lot of material on internet for your guide and need some knowledge on networking. Good Luck
