Internet Router Access

Oct 2, 2017 7:31PM PDT

Ok so I need to run and manage a server from a router far away, my router at home cannot do port forwarding due to the amount of people on it... At my second home, about a mile away... Is a empty network I can use, now there are no pc's on this network so I can't use remote desktop, so is there a way I could simply connect to this network thru a network I already have access too? Like some kind of send wifi over wifi...

Ok, I have 2 routers one is capable of port forward one is not... The one that is capable I am not near but I have to constantly monitor the server from home, it's a simple game server that runs thru command prompt that must be port forwarded, my question is how can I run and manage this port forwarded server...from my home internet which has no port forward rights

the router far away. Then you say there are no PC's. You can look into PC Anywhere from Symantec.

I'm confused here.

You write you want to manage a server then claim you can't port forward but a server would be set up to be accessible to the internet so why the need to port forward?

Try again to explain the setup.

Also, all the servers I managed over the decades have management tools and more. What server is this?

Ahh, not a server but one of those game servers.

You omitted the router make and models as well as why you couldn't just autostart the game server.

As to the no port forward all routers I've used allow to put the server or game server into the DMZ.
I'm going to pause here as there is no need to write that DMZ is or how to autostart a game server (such is widely discussed on the web if you need to catch up.)

I need the command prompt open on my PC screen fully port forwarded, but on internet that I can't port forward on... I need to know some way to port forward on my internet which I can't access router page, or connect to my other router from home ...HOW
