Hey all, hopefully once again the guru's out there can help an Ubuntu/linux rookie out
So I have a machine on one of my local networks running Ubuntu desktop 10.10, and I have remote desktop enabled on it. I got it setup to run Rdesktop on the local network fairly easily, and with some basic port forwarding etc on the gateway its enabled from remote networks also, no problems there really (Though for some reason Firestarter, or more to the point IPTables took some cajoling)
However with this machine not up all the time, How would I go about bringing it up remotely from an external network and then login to my user account?
(At this point I'm assuming I would simply use remote desktop to login to the machine as I have been doing? Or is there a less cumbersome (more all in one) solution to this?)
