Could you elaborate on the last point? I have access to a mullvad VPN account which I use for other purposes.bredman wrote:If your network administrator has blocked external access, this will severely limit your options.
In essence, it means that the RPi cannot just sit there and passively wait for incoming connections. It must actively create outgoing connections.
The easiest way is to mirror the files to a cloud drive. You mentioned Dropbox so it seems that you are aware of this possibility.
Another way is to have no files at all on the RPi, they only exist in the cloud. You could use Google Docs for example, but I have never tried to use Google Docs in a browser on the RPi so the performance might be lousy.
The hardest way would be to establish a VPN Virtual Private Network. You would need to pay for a VPN server outside your college. The RPi would establish one VPN session to the server and another PC could join the session. You end up with a network which appear to just have the two computers connected directly to each other. This is not for the faint-hearted especially if your network admin is actively trying to block access from outside.
