Hello all! :o)
Here is the problem:
- I have several computers at home, one is the server that connects to the internet (always on broadband) and shares internet access with the other PCs.
- I recently set this server up so i can Remote desktop in from an outside computer (and from there I can RD to any computer on the home network).
I did this by installing the appropriate IIS components and unblocking the appropriate ports through the firewall etc..
This allows me to access the server by going to http://xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:xxxx/tsweb/
, where the x's are the computers external IP address and the port used.
- This setup works fine everywhere except where I want to use it!
It works on a BT dialup connection, and my girlfriends internet connection where she works, but not from where I work.
I'm the admin at a middle school where all the computers access the internet via an external proxy server (so I can't change its settings), and I think it is this that is stopping the connection (blocking a port perhaps).
Does anyone know of a way around this, via some free tunnelling software, or perhaps another method of connecting to the server besides remote desktop?
All suggestions are welcome! :o)
