So lets say I am in Chicago and my router/server is in San Francisco. I would connect /login to the server via the router's VPN service?
A PPTP tunnel.
My laptop to Hotel wifi >>> hotel wifi to the hotels ISP >>>Hotel ISP to world wide web/internet to my house's ISP >>>my house's ISP to my router's VPN >>> routers VPN to my local network/usb storrage(shared folder).
If that's the case do I really need my FTP server since the same folder that is used for my FTP is also shared locally on my LAN?
