Okay. Let's say that for the sake of argument, I wanted to touch my computer from the internet. I want to touch it in a polite way, meaning I want to talk to it via IP address and use a valid password to gain access to my computer from a remote site.
What all do I need to do to make this happen?
I assume that I first need the IP address of the ISP where the computer is located. Next, I assume I need the IP address of the actual computer wihtin the ISP's network. Next, I need my userid and password.
I know I have the last bit here since it is my machine, but how do I get the other stuff and am I missing stuff?
Since I realize that some of this stuff may be a bit heavy and I obviously do not want to start a "how to hack someone's machine" thread, I am asking that the real low level things be done via PM and the high level things as simple additions to this thread. I trust that the mods will help me keep this thread within the guidleines of the AUP.
