VNC client access thru a bridged Modem
Posted on 2010-01-08
I've got a network setup behind a modem supplied by AT&T. Their device has been placed in "bridged" mode. My Cisco router is handling DHCP for our LAN. LAN clients are communicating across the network with no problems. I've downloaded a free version of VNC (I'm open to doing this again with any version) and VNC Server is installed on all clients. To access a LAN client from a remote location, I've installed VNC Viewer on a remote PC. I've got the Static IP supplied by AT&T to allow me access from the outside and to pass me through to my router. My Cisco router is configured for port forwarding to all clients - and each of these clients has had their listening ports changed to 3390 thru 3391.
I was hoping to connect to the clients via the VNC Viewer by entering:
Static IP Address:listening port of desired client
This is not working. I'm recieving an error -> Failed to connect to Server
Computers on LAN are running Windows 7 Home Premium which prohibits me from using Remote Desktop Connection, which I would prefer.
Remote Computer is running Windows Vista Home Premium.
