I will be travelling shortly, and I have a machine that run runs a bunch of cron jobs etc. I need to log in remotely to check the results of the jobs run and to do some work on the machine.
Here are the salient facts:
- The machine to be connected (mothership) is running Ubuntu 14.0.4
- The mothership is connected to the internet via a LAN at home, so has a public facing IP address.
- The IP address is dynamically assigned.
- I will be connecting to the mothership using a Laptop running Ubuntu 15.10
I prefer to use ssh rather than VNC, because of bandwidth problems – plus, all I need is the command line anyway.
What is the best way to securely connect remotely to my machine?
