    win10 VPN samba Android

    yo dudes! im

    so i got a little project going on here and its not going well.

    I have my win10 pc at home and i want to access my network shared hdd's from my android when im out and about. I am using Total Commander on my Android. I can browse the network shared drives when I'm at home connected to my network, and i want to be able to do the same thing when I'm elsewhere, that's possible right? That's samba (SMB) and VPN I'm supposed to use then, right?

    SMB has nothing to do with VPN or Android OS. In order to be able to VPN into your home, you would have to have a VPN server or a Router that allows PPTP VPN. You can use the Raspberry Pi B 2 as a OpenVPN server. Then you just need to run the OpenVPN client on your Android device.
