Just wanted to share a service I'm using to manage my raspberry Pi(s) remotely. I don't have any financial interest in this service....It's called Weaved.com and is focused on the Internet of Things. If you have your Pi exposed to the internet, and you're allowing incoming connections to ssh, you probably don't need this. But if you don't want to do port forwarding on your router or you can't (don't have control of the router, don't have a public IP on your router) then take a look at Weaved.
I've set my two dstar pi repeaters up so that I can use WebSSH, ssh, and VNC. It's pretty simple to setup, and is free for a limited number of devices/ports.
