I develop websites on my (high-end) laptop, and I work from a variety of physical locations.
I would like to save the hassle of constantly synchronizing with an externally visible web server in order for clients to test progress of the site (or for related purposes).Therefore, I am trying to find a way to enable my laptop to be automatically publicly visible from the internet, from any location, even when I do not have access to the router to set up port forwarding (such as from coffee shops, or from other public wireless connections).
I already use DynDNS to make my choice of domain names forward to a desktop server through a router that I have set up ... but like I say, I'd like to scrap the step of utilizing this desktop server.
I was hoping that paid reverse-proxy services (charging a monthly fee for an account) would provide proprietary socket-level client/server "reverse proxy" software that could be used for this purpose. I can't find one. I already use TeamViewer and LogMeIn, providing similar proprietary services. In fact, I attempted to use LogMeIn Hamachi VPN to make this possible - by making my desktop (already visible to the internet) forward IP traffic requesting port 80 along through the VPN to my laptop. However, it doesn't seem possible to set Hamachi/Windows up like this (but I might be wrong).
I hope there is a simple and robust way to accomplish this.
