Hi guys, I was wondering if someone could help me as to the best way to block external connections without blocking myself when I'm on the road? I'm using Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-101 K26 USB Big-VPN firmware with a Cisco (Linksys) E4200 v1 router and here's my scenario: I'm using Remote desktop on a macbook to connect over 5900 and 3823, back to my home PC, which I have no issues with, BUT... I was noticing that there had been repeated attempts to log on to my machine, a typical IP being 126.96.36.199, which is Kiev in Russia according to Whois. Right now, I have it configured to only allow access via known IP's which means when I'm on the road, I can't access it myself so it defeats the purpose. To get around that, I have been logging in using realvnc over a non standard port, enabling the current IP i'm using in my firewall and then re-logging in using Remote Desktop. Can anyone suggest a better way to protect myself? Is blocking all IPS from that country via an ip tables script then only way, or can someone suggest other alternatives that I haven't thought of? Thanks in advance.
