    His preferred solution is to use a VPN.
    There’s a few out there.
    See episode 155 of Ask Noah Show.

    Or his wireguard tutorial
  2. you are correct. I forgot to add the links. I have fixed that in the shownotes.

    Back in December, I mentioned some tips and pointers on how to hide an SSH server’s world-accessible port inside a Wireguard tunnel (so that without an established Wireguard tunnel, the SSH server can’t be remotely accessed):

    Thanks everyone - very entertaining, as usual :slight_smile: I think with Canonical’s move, I’m also very interested in what upstream support that could bring to AnBox. Although it might not be a priority, I do think that being able to tap into the vast number of already developed Android apps could tip the balance in favour of any alternative. I think even Google are aiming for that (first in ChromeOS and now presumably their new OS which they’re building will also run Android apps). Technically it must be possible as a few years ago I was amazed at how suprisingly effectively LeapDroid emulated Android on Windows; including for games and apps like Amazon Kindle. I can’t remember if there was a version for Linux or not, but the work that went into it shows that a high degree of compatibility is possible. I guess if full virtualisation isn’t necessary for AnBox then potentially it could run faster. I do hope the project continues. As for conversations about the desktop and monetising, I think a point that it’s possible to return to over and over is lack of funds available for open source developers. There was an excellent discussion on a DLNXtend podcast about users donating to project if able to!
