Accessing BOINCTasks outside the LAN
« on: August 13, 2019, 08:08:50 pm »
I have BOINCTasks set up to monitor my Linux machines on the LAN using a Windows machine on the same LAN (, and everything works fine.  But when away from home, I would like to monitor the machines from the WAN side of my router.  I have tried forwarding the port 31416 to various other ports, one for each machine, but I can not access them over the Internet, where I use my WAN IP address and the appropriate port number in BOINCTasks running on my notebook PC.

The problem may be my ISP, but how should I check it?

First Boinc isn't safe to acces over the internet, nothing is encrypted.
I personally use teamviewer to access BoincTasks over the Internet.
Another option would be to set up a VPN connection.

An alternative is if you have a Windows computer running on your local net.
