Access a private Network from the internet

Hi CE,
I am trying to access my home computer that is part of a private network (because it has an IP address with 192.168.xx.xx.) form another computer in the internet.
If i go to What Is My IP Address? - IP Address Lookup, Internet Speed Test, IP Info, plus more i get the same ip that anyone having access to internet through this private network would get.(i think this is the one for the server for the network).
My question is if there is a way in which i can access my computer (whose ip is static on the private network) from anywhere on the internet, i want to host my own server, and the server must be at my physical location.

If you are on a private network, without access to the router, then itll be very difficult to access your machine, until and unless you use some software based VPN client.

Try to ping the machine you're trying to access, are the machines pingable?

I have been reading about VPN and it seems that it will do the job.
Thank you CE, especially Big_k and kidakadaka

Hi friends i'll suggest you not to access a computer inside a private network without permission of the network administrator. You can face legal charges for this. A computer in private network with dynamic ip can be accessed by port scan which is crime according to cyber crime laws. So be careful. If you don't want to get in trouble get a third party remote access software, install on both computers, from which you want to access and on the computer which you want to access. Don't save passwords on your computer for remote access this can be harmful. Try it, its an easy way to access computer in private network without breaking laws.

I just found this software . may be you an give it a trial GoToMyPC.

All it needs is installation of the software on your personal computer and then from the web interface you will be able to access you computer from anywhere.
I really dont know about security and safetyness of using this though.
