Hi Jonathan!

Accessing the idr via outside network can be accomplished in a few ways — the easist, but least secure is probably to forward whatever ports the editor uses from your outside-ip to your idr ip. This is called port forwarding, or sometimes called putting the idr on the dmz. If you plan to have a standard broadband internet connection with a router, then just forward the ports the IDR uses to the idr ip in your router.. should be simple enough.

The problem with that, is that anyone can jump on remotely by pointing their editor instance at your external IP. The better solution would be to install a VPN product (there are some open source versions) — vpn into the network so that your PC is then connected on that network, then you would be able to access the IDR via local IP.
