You mean about 24 minutes into the episode?
His preferred solution is to use a VPN.
There’s a few out there.
See episode 155 of Ask Noah Show.

Or do what I did two years ago and use this

It’s been stable and easy to use and setup on Ubuntu.
Just needed to punch a hole in my firewall and scp the the VPN profiles to my client machines. Make sure to put a passphrase on your profiles.
Apparently it now even includes wireguard!

you are correct. I forgot to add the links. I have fixed that in the shownotes.

in fact, the links that @blockhead provided are correct so thanks for that :smiley:

Thanks for sharing that again @esbeeb.
Your post prompted me to finally try out wireguard.
I’m still having some issues but the main limiting factor is time:)

Right, wireguard port exposed.
