    Boot up VM from remote client?

    Hello everyone, I couldn't find an answer to this problem. Let's say I have several OS VMs like Win, MacOS, Linux Desktops.

    Hi, I'm considering switching my current 'cloud' VPS setup to a dedicated server (e.g. Hetzner) with Proxmox running 2-3 VMs. Currently I'm only running Proxmox in my homelab, which works great but obviously has other security requirements than a remote setup. Are there any pointers to best...
