Remoting into one server from another one and transferring files.
Maybe even a Security Server for cams
The Physical Server will have access to the internet.
I'd like to do the following:
1) Remote into the server to perform administrative tasks.
2) Be able to transfer files from this location to the other location and vice versa. Move files from this location to that location so that they can be backed up.
For the RDP task, I'd imagine that this would be as simple as using port forwarding on port 3389 etc. and specifying IP address: X:X:X:X:3389 and RDPing in.
However, I am using Comcast rental modem/routers at both locations and there doesn't seem to be much to the GUI.
I have used TeamViewer as well, but that seemed unreliable to me e.g. TeamViewer server not loading, passwords and sessions seemingly changing on the fly....etc.
The part that has me baffled is the ability to transfer files back and forth.
I have been an IT guy for about 20 years and know that in theory you can (or could have used) FTP. 20 years ago everything was so hard and buggy.
I remember 20 yrs ago looking at something called CuteFTP, realizing that nothing was cute about it and then turning my back on it lol!
In my experience, copying and pasting (especially larger files) via RDP was just a recipe to hang windows explorer.
Any ideas how I can accomplish both goals?
