  • knock

    A port-knocking daemon (by jvinet)

    As other's have suggested, I use wireguard to get into these services. One other thing I would suggest though is to setup SSH with external access using port knocking along with SSH keys. That means if your VPN is failing for some reason you can at least diagnose it.
