I use openvpn ( https://open [url=https://open]https://openvpn.net[/url] vpn .net to set up a secure connection to my home lan. in most case everything is accessed as if at home. You may still need to know you lan IP for the indi server; I have not tried to see if the hostname astroberry.local is visible; some things will need to be repeated to the vpn. IP access though should work, as the typically setup includes repeating this between LAN and VPN.

The vpn would then address security concerns, and once connected can mean that you are connected as if home. OpenVPN also has mac, and iOS, clients. Using the iPhone app over VPN to check Ekos by browser or VNC does work very well.

Thanks for your suggestion. Open VPN seems very popular.
