I have a Raspberry Pi 3 running as a controller for some Avalon 741 miners.  From my home PC,  I can just type in 192.168.1.207, and it goes right to it to access its administrative console.

 

How can I do this from other locations, like at work or outside my home network?  I was thinking I could just type in my home IP address with a slash and 207, or something like that, like 144.133.122.111/207 to directly access the controller from other places.

 

Will this work?  I'd prefer to not use other management programs or VPNs if it isn't absolutely necessary.

If you can get to it by just typing the IP address it is most likely using port 80 which is blocked by most ISPs.  You're going to have to change the port it is listening on in order to have it work from the outside.  Then you would have to forward that port on your router to the 192.168.1.207 address.

Okay, I can change the port, any suggestions as to which port to change it to?  And my ISP is Verizon.

 

And if I were at work, for example, what would I type in to IE to get access?  I can't just type 192.168.1.207, it would have no idea to go to my house to look for it.  I presume I'd type my routers' IP in, followed by something to specify the .207, but exactly what?

Normally port 80 is changed to 8080.  You would forward port 8080 to your device on the router.  To connect you would enter your public IP address followed by :8080 to signify the port, i.e. 9.9.9.9:8080
