Remote Desktop through one subnet to another?
Posted on 2010-09-17
I'm not really sure of the right terminolgy to explain our configuration, but here goes:
We've got our own small departmental network with our own domain controller, subnet and firewall. We get our internet access through our company's internet IP. For example, when we do a whatismyip we get the same IP address as the rest of the company. Our internet works fine.
We'd like to Remote Desktop into one of our computers from home, but when we try it, we're directed to the *Company's* domain, and the RDP login screen doesn't give us the option to key in our own domain. I'm assuming that others in our company (maybe just the IT admin) connect to THEIR computers using RDP and that's why, on the RDP login screen, it's defaulting to the Company's domain name instead of ours.
Is there a way to bypass/go through that RDP "host" and get straight through to OUR computer with RDP listening? Is there a way to use an address like: 188.8.131.52:192.168.1.105 to get to ours? (I've tried that, and it doesn't work.)
Would VNC work, or would we get the same results?
