    As others have said, yes, you can. You’ll need an account setup (I recommend using the same one to get up and running) and run through the setup of WinRM. There is. A Powershell script from Ansible that does the work. Also, the higher the level of Powershell installed, the better. You’ll need to find a way to get them all communicating since there is no agent. If they are on separate networks that are not reachable, some method of getting them talking is needed. I haven’t tried this but Tailscale may be worth a look.

    I use Tailscale and I really love it, was crazy simple to setup and use. Using this, or something like it (ZeroTier is another option) you would be able to access your dashboard from anywhere WITHOUT allowing any rando.

  • Is the built-in OpenVPN Server support on my Asus router fine to access my local network away from home?
    1 project | | 13 May 2022
    Personally i would think it would be easier to roll your own. I am not sure how up to date a built in VPN on a router is kept up to date. I would definitely not use PPTP, that has been a security hole for years, IPSec is more of a enterprise thing which by itself isn't secure, so you need to pair it with L2TP, so it's more convoluted. OpenVPN is fine, but again I'm not sure how up to date the OpenVPN server on the router is kept up to date. Since you have a RPi, you could set up a PiVPN on it, which is a script to set up an OpenVPN server on it. It's super simple to set up. You will need to open up a port on your router though. A newer and more secure method to access your RPi is based on a newer protocol, Wireguard. You can create a Wireguard server, or use a thing called Tailscale. Tailscale is based around Wireguard, but you don't need to open up ports on your router. With Tailscale, you can set it up so you can use Tailscale just to access your RPi from home, and all of your internet traffic doesn't go through Tailscale, or you could set up your RPi to act as a traditional VPN server, so all of your internet traffic will go through your Pi. This is like if you want to do banking, accessing social media, etc on unsecured networks. It helps to have that extra layer of security.

    If you want easy private access without needing to opening ports or worry about static ip addresses, you could do worse than to consider one of the newer alternatives -, or
