    So I have setup a dyndns.org account and I can remotely access my router - WRT54G v5 using DD-WRT micro v23 SP2 . I have setup up an internal network with 2 computers at the moment, both with assigned IP addresses.

    Computer 1 is a linux computer (FC5) and Computer 2 is a Windows MCE computer. Can someone direct me as to how I can go about setting up being able to access both computers remotely - both through using the CLI and a GUI. I will be looking to access both computers from an XP based computer.

    dd-wrt has a built-in VPN (PPTP and OpenVPN). Configure one of those and connect remotely to your home PC using RDP to access your Windows PC and VNC for your Linux box. Noticed you're running dd-wrt micro, not sure VPN is available on the dd-wrt micro.

    Lets say I am using user.dyndns.org and Computer 1 has internal IP address 110.110.1.1. What would be the address I use?

    Once you've established a VPN connection, then just connect to your computer using the internal IP address via RDP or VNC or course

    Seems micro only has PPTP.

    Options

    I really have no clue what to put in each of those boxes
