Hello,
I would like to setup my network for remote connection in a different way than normal.
I have two computers connected and sharing files through LAN with one router.
then each computer has a modem with its own IP address to two different ISP.
one computer has static IP address and the other computer dynamic IP.
my question is: is it possible for me to remote control (the dynamic ip computer) by getting through the static IP since both computers are connected through LAN?

You must have two NIC's in each computer (one for the LAN and one for the Modem). The two computers have different external IP addresses.

You can set up remote control to either machine from the outside by using the appropriate address. Unless the dynamic computer is changing its IP all the time, you should be able to connect into it.

How often does the dynamic computer change IP?  My setup changes IP about every 6 - 9 months.

Connect into the static IP computer. This would be the same as the above except IP would never change.  Now use Windows RDP to enter the internal IP of the dynamic computer. It might work. Use IP addresses and not names.

thats true both computer have its own external IP address and internet IP address too since they each have two NIC cards..

I can connect to each computer using their external ip address perfectly fine with RDC..

but for testing and learning purposes I would like to know if its possible to connect to the static ip and somehow control the dynamic ip computer by passing the data through the LAN router..

Log in to the static IP computer and then use RDP from the static IP computer to log in to the dynamic IP computer by IP address. I think it will be very slow.

i've found my own solution that works perfectly fine by using port forwarding..


netsh interface portproxy add v4tov4 listenport=4422 listenaddress=192.168.1.111 connectport=80 connectaddress=192.168.0.33
