I would like to be able to access files at home from work. I imagine I can use OpenVPN and Samba to do this... or some sort of simple SSH tunnel. Is there a step-by-step tutorial for this?
I do not know much about my work network so I don't know if I'd need to know that stuff first. I'd like to know what I'd need to install at home on my ubuntu desktop and at work on my windows desktop and the configurations I'd need to make.
I'm a complete noob when it comes to networking so a very easy to follow tutorial would be great. I've tried searching these forums but most posts are over my head or do not go into much detail. I know how to configure samba, I just don't know how to setup the VPN connection (or "SSH tunnel" ?). All I want to do is be able to share files.
