Remote Desktop - I just can't get it to work......
Posted on 2006-05-12
First off....networking is really not my thing...please bear with me if I use the wrong terminology, or don't know what something is called. (thanks!!)
I have a small office (10 PCs all with XP, 1 server with Windows Server 2003). I can use remote desktop between the pcs while I'm in the office (using the full computer name example: laptop001-work.local.companyname.com) and a predecessor has told me that he set up the server so that one of the vendors could remote desktop in. (I have a call in to the vendor to see what he is using for PC name and domain to get in.)
However, I can't for the life of me figure out what I need to do.
The internal IP addresses are 192.168.1.....etc.
When I go to the whatismyip.com site it gives me the external IP address (same one regardless of what PC in the office I use - server or desktops.
I need directions (the simpler the better!!) on what exactly I need to do to get all 10 users to be able to use Remote Desktop from their homes to access their PCs.
