D-Link Router & ADSL Modem (Dynamic IP) -- VNC through external network.

Want to Connect to my Computer through VNC from outside the network.

Here is the scoop.

Earthlink ADSL (Dynamic IP Address)
D-Link Wireless Router (192.168.0.1)
PC - Wired Connection to Router Static IP Assigned 192.168.0.100
DeeEns - to keep track of my IP address and to access my computer (epssd01.serveftp.net)

Here is all what i have tried

1. Enabled DMZ and put the IP - 192.168.0.100 --  didnt work
2. Virtual Server - VNC - opened up port # 5900 -- didnt work


When i ping the machine, ofcourse it pings.

What should i do get this working.

I am at the end of my wits.

Can anyone help me with this. :)

Thanks in advance
Prakash

This is XP's answer to Terminal Services.  It is very easy to configure, and as long as you open (port forward) port 3389, then it works very nicely.  

RDP = Remote Desktop Protocol

What Operating Systems are you running here?  If XP Pro, you can use RDP (encrypted so you don't need a VPN) then just forward port 3389 to the LAN system with the static address.  

BTW:  VNC is not encrypted, so I would advise using TightVNC if you do not have XP Pro...

I believe you can't ping 192.168.0.100 from outside . Also you can't connect any service on 192.168.0.100 without single port forwarding on your D-link .

Correct, you need to find out what your public address is, then port forward on the router to your private address .100

Easist way to discover your ip is to use the MyIp internet service:  http://www.myip.dk/
Just click on the link and it will tell you your IP address..  then use it with VNC or as I prefer, your RemoteDesktop session (XP)...
