Remote Connection from Pi to PC

Fri Dec 27, 2019 7:33 pm

I'm trying to connect from my new Pi to my desktop PC from outside my network. I know you can do this through RDP on a LAN, but everything over the internet only seems to let me go from PC to Pi, not the other way around. Is there a way to do this, I'm still new to this platform so any help would be awesome. Thanks!

RealVNC Connect uses the "Cloud Middleman" Solution:

The Raspberry Pi running Buster Operating System has both RealVNC Viewer and Server.


Therefore run RealVNC Server on your PC, RealVNC Client on you Raspberry Pi, you will need a RealVNC Account;

Got my very first Pi this afternoon and using it here now.

Was wondering how best to link to my Windoze box and there it is!

Guess I'll need to install a wifi card into my PC now? I have a few laying around so no biggy if I do.

Great post @fruitoftheloom! Thanks

I found that pi to linux pc and vice versa for terminal logins works well going both ways to other linux hosts.
And that for non-root file sharing sshnet using sshfs works well running raspbian buster10.2 with a realtime kernel.
This pi, an rpi4 has a main job of running LinuxCNC to operate an 11x54 Sheldon metal lathe. It has 2 SSD's attached, and I use those as workspace to build new kernels and the bleeding edge LinuxCNC for other folks to use.

See at <http://genes.linuxbox.net:6309/gene/lah ... xcnc4rpi4/> but my connection is watching paint dry slow.
