Remote Desktop Setup not working out...
Posted on 2006-10-20
I am trying to set up my home machine to have remote desktop.. I used to do it all the time, but that is awhile ago... and I can't remember if I am doing it wrong or right....
OS: WinXP Professional
Remote Desktop is set as allowed on the host ("allow users to connect remotely" is checked)
on the router I forward the port 3389 to the host machines ip address (ie 192.168.1.109)
Got my real ip by looking at router settings and verifying with "Whatismyip.com"
OS: WinXP Home
Start -> accessories ->communication -> Remote Desktop
enter in username: (the real ip)
that should do it.. but it doesnt...
I tested it internally by using the computers name..and that works...
