  1. I did the same thing, but connecting to my home LAN with a self hosted VPN. The open VPN subnet and home LAN subnet can ping each other, so I can reverse proxy to the devices connected with the VPN like I can with the devices that are in the home LAN. I wanted to make a video about it, I eventually will when I got the time. I did all this to have a remote instance of home assistant working, reachable from the web as I can for my home's home assistant install.
    Yours is a very cool way to do it, but I think i would have not been skilled enough to think of that

  2. The only problem with this approach is that you can't see the source IP addresses of connections.

    Btw, why are you living in a hotel room, isn't it very expensive? Wouldn't renting an apartment be cheaper? 😀

  3. A better option would be to setup a wireguard on vps and use iptables to forward. Used to use ssh fwrding but wireguard is much much better…
