Hi,

I've a fast internet connection and a remote gentoo box with media files on it; now


  • I want to integrate that remote server into my local LAN, so
  • that I can run minidnla on that remote server, so
  • my local TV sees the minidnla service on my remote server.


I that possible? I use a Siemens Gigaset router, and my remote server sits in a data center; the TV is in my LAN. Which approach should I use? People usually use VPN to connect the other way around.. I've now idea which approach I should investigate further: VLan, WAN, bridge.. a little lost. :?


Regards,
Blackhan.

I can't comment on the minidnla bits, but I'm using Linux bridging combined with OpenVPN to stretch what looks like 1 ethernet segment across three different systems across the united states. It basically looks like a weird LAN connection where from any one point, the other two hosts are either 40ms or 75ms away.
