   You could set up a VPN from the single "home pc" to alias.FQDN where
"alias" is known only to the "home pc" to be redirected to boxname.FQDN but
I would double check with a reverse DNS lookup to the "home pc" and use
encryption if it does not have a fixed IP address.
   It is too easy to collect a keylogger or trojan on a home pc.
