If you need to access the resource in office but working from home, you can consider using VPN. VPN can help you access your office network remotely and safely.

 

But your office should has a router supporting VPN, then you can use your PC, Phone or other clients to establish a VPN tunnel with the router. Then the clients can access the resource in office. If your office is using TP-link VPN router, you can refer to the following FAQ to establish the VPN tunnel.

You still can use virtual server (port forwarding) to make your clients be able to access the server in your office. But VPN should be more secure.

Thank you, I was looking for an answer to this question. However, because of the VPN, the network speed will not get worse?

No, the speed will not decrease. The websites/pages on the internet you visit come to your PC with many hops anyway. The speed would depend on the weakest (slowest) link that too only in case of direct downloads. For regular surfing, it wont matter much.
