Hi m_farlotta,

from outside (WAN) i prefer VPN for that.

I agree with @transocean, it is not wise to open up NS or any other firewall or router to the public, its just too risky. It is best to access it via a secure tunnel like VPN.

@m_farlotta
If you think about using other services like dokuwiki or sogo or webtop from outside your lan, I would prefer to install a second server with these services.

You do not connect remotely to any admin page, ever. You get a VPN into the local network and proceed from there. Doing it any other way is asking for a world of trouble that WILL eventually hit you when you are least prepared for that.

SSH would be possible too:
