Rising to the Challenge
Greetings! It’s been about a year since my last blog post so it is time for my obligatory annual entry.
Actually, a couple people have asked me to write up some instructions on getting remote access to a home / office network so they can use remote resources like Apple’s Time Capsule or iTunes music shares.
I’ve decided to rise to the challenge, BUT I feel that I need to lay a solid base of knowledge before I tackle explaining my solution. My goal is to help you make smart decisions about designing your network.
Over the next several posts, I plan to cover the following topics:
- Numbering systems (Decimal, Binary, Hexadecimal)
- Bits, Nibbles, Bytes, Words
- TCP/IP Networking
- Using OpenVPN to access your network remotely
To some / most of you, a lot of this will be boring or old news to you, but please keep with it! If anything, correct where I’m wrong, call me out when you think I’m full of it, and most certainly, ask for clarification when you just don’t understand what I’m talking about.
Let’s DO this!
