Admin shares over the internet
Posted on 2004-08-26
I have a Laptop which once in a blue moon I need to access remotely over the internet. The only time the laptop is ever connected to the internet is when I'm copying files onto it.
Ideally I'd like to do this using the C$ share, I know the laptops internet IP and I know the 'Server' service is running.
When I try to connect to the laptop I just get path not found.
The internet connection is just a 56k dialup, and I can ping the machine fine.
I'm aware of all the security implications in doing this but they aren't really a concern because the machine is rebuilt on a very regular basis and its only very rarely connected.
Can anyone help me figure out why it is timing out.
