Alrighty, I have a client that wants to access his pc at his office from home; no problem, done it before.
Here is what I did:
I went to regedit and made a change in the port under
Right clicked on My computer went to remote and allowed remote access
Went to control panel and setup an exception in the firewall with that port number
Went to the router and setup forwarding to the ip/port number
Went to the clients house and setup the remote desktop icon on the desktop with the correct ip address and port number like I have done before.
Clicked on the icon and it tells me I can not connect.
I connected to another, different pc in his office that is setup for the same thing with a different port number and I can get into that pc.
I went back to his office and was able to remote to the server using his remote desktop.
Why can I not get to his pc from his home, when I can access other pcs that are setup the same way with differnet port numbers. I even changed the port number thinking that maybe something was screwy with that port numer, still no dice.
Any Ideas?? Please help!!!
