Hello All -
I have successfully set up my Windows Vista home PC to be accessed externally through the internet using Windows Remote Desktop Connection. So, I go to my parents' house, open Remote Desktop on their PC, and type in my IP address... Bang! I am on my home PC. No problem.
However, from my work PC, I am totally unable to even ping my IP address at home, let along get to it with Remote Desktop Connection.
My company has a firewall and web proxy server in place. Is there some way they are blocking me from getting to my own PC? They are pretty aggressive about blocking sites like logmein.com (which is why Iam using Remote Desktop). So is there a way for me to sidestep whatever might be blocking me? In case it matters, the IP address at my work PC starts with 10.
FYI, I have opened port 3389 on my home PC, and currently I even configured my LinkSys router to be in the DMZ. So I am wide open at home. Just cant get there from here (here being work). I get an error in the Remote Desktop COnnection window that says: "This computer cannot connect to the remote computer".
Please help me beat the system!
