This question already has an answer here:

At home I have a large nas with a bunch of video files on it (various filetypes). I'm looking for a way to stream those videos if I need them so I can watch them from any computer that has a internet connection.

It would need username/password protection or at least ip based protection.

I would recommend a VPN connection, allowing you to just directly connect to the server across the internet. A good package download will get you started...

sudo aptitude install pptpd
