Issue with ASUS Router and remote desktop with private internet access
Posted on 2013-10-31
At my home I have a PC setup with a static IP address and my router is setup to port forward remote desktop requests to that computer. I have had this setup for a number of years and I can remote desktop in just fine with private internet access setup. My public IP from my ISP is dynamic but does not change for months at a time so I am able to connect via IP. (before I used private internet access I used dyndns.org to link to the router IP)
The problem is this was all working fine until I replaced my router with a ASUS rt-n56u router. I can still remote desktop in after setting up NAT (using my current public IP address). The problem is the second I turn on Private Internet Access the connection drops and I cannot connect while it is on. When I get home I checked to make sure the IP was not changing - it has not changed since I put in the new router and wrote down the IP. This was never a problem with my previous routers.
Anyone have any ideas of why this is happening?
