Using Static IP Address ?

To access your office PC you need to talk to your companies network / admin dept. You would use some software called VPN (virtual provate networking) which your company should supply to access their own network. I'm not sure you will be able to access you actual office PC though, only your company network/

Note: if you intend to connect t your office network, you need to be running a teleworker account, as access to office networks via VPN is not allowed on resedential accounts as detailed in the T&C.

You can't run a games server from your PlusNet webspace as server processes are not permitted on the CGI servers. You can run it from your own PC but the upload limit of 256Kbs will severly limit how many connections you can support.
