Web remote sesion

Posted on 2011-05-01

I have setted up a windows 2008 standard server with a TS web site for remote control over the internet.
I use DYNDNS for address resolution
If i log into the web site via my ocal web site everything works.
As soon as i go into the site via the internet i get into the server, log in to get to the point where you enter the IP and then get a error message telling me the remote server (one hosting the site) is not available for remote control.
I use as the server IP
Can it be a router problem?

    If you mean you're accessing your site thru "http://localhost/", then the server may not be accepting non-local logins.  Many servers are set up that way.

    If you are 'out on the internet' and not on your LAN, then '' is a private non-routable IP address.  You would have to set up your router to forward the appropriate packets from your public IP address.

    if i work on the internet i can log into my server , my router is setted up to forward the trafic, the problem comes in as soon as i am logged in to the server.
    Under the remote tab you need to point it to a machine - i exspected the IP to be the problem but how do i fix it

    I'm not sure so you need to "Request Attention" to get some others that know more about it than I do.

    What exactly are you trying to do?
    I will tell you what I think you are doing and you tell me if I am wrong.
    You have a TS behind your router (on your internal LAN) and you now setup a web interface (web access) so you can access the TS from the outside through the web access thing. Is this correct?
    If that is the case you problem is simple:
    1. Make sure the router is forwarding port 3389 TCP to the internal IP of the TS.
    2. When you try to connect from the outside, the IP address you must enter is the ROUTER EXTERNAL IP address and NOT the TS internal one. Or simply enter the DNS name you have for your site as it will resolve to the external IP of the router.
