Thanks for the response...I have tried to use ssh before but everytime I did a 
message always says "operation timed out"...and I could not know what went 
wrong...I have read the handbook and have found information using google 
before trying it and it seems that it was not working...I had to let it go 
for awhile or maybe gave up on it...but then it just keeps coming back to me 
because there are times when I really need to access my pc at home to 
administer it...That is why I posted my Email...just asking if it is really 
possible...Now, that I found out that it is going to take more reading and 
maybe try my settings in a different environment (if I am lucky)...
Again, thanks for the reply...and my apologies for taking some of your 

Have a nice day guys...
