Apologies in advance, I am a complete noob to this and I am just barely dipping my toes into networking for the first time. I think I have a basic understanding of how most aspects work in concept, but I'm getting a little lost when trying to actually apply that knowledge in real scenarios.
I wanted to set up a VPN on my desktop computer so that I could remotely connect to it over the Internet from my laptop. I decided to use Windows Remote Desktop Connection, but to connect two computers that aren't on the same network using that software I need to set up a VPN for my laptop to connect to.
I knew I had a free copy of FortiClient available to me through my university. I downloaded & installed it, and then tried to set up an SSL-VPN. However, one of the fields it asked for was the "Remote Gateway"... and I have no idea what that is. Searching online for a definition just brings up articles about a server software called "Remote Desktop Gateway Server", which I believe is different? (although please let me know if I'm wrong!)
So all I am wondering is what the "Remote Gateway" that FortiClient is asking for?
Again, I am completely new to this so I would appreciate it if you're gentle because I'm very willing to learn, but I'm just still starting out. :) Thanks!
