  • Using Remote desktop over an firewall

    Hi,
    I have an interet connection on my home PC and i would like to use remote desktop or some other software to access my home PC's desktop from my office. I am behind a firewall in my office as well as behind a firewall at my home. I am using Win xp SP2 as my OS. I called up the ISP and they told me that they have all the ports blocked on my account in their server I do have an static IP address assigned to my PC at home. Is there any other way of accessing my home pc from either RDC or any other software. I would prefer not to use any other web applications either because they are paid or for trail.(like Gotomypc).

    Thank you

    IP

    You will need to obtain access via TCP 3389 from your company computer to the computer at home, and configure the firewall at home to allow access to port TCP 3389.

      Hi,

      Thanks for the reply but i am able to connect to the other pc at my home which is a laptop and which would be connected sometimes to the network and i can access it through RDC.

      Let me give you an example of waht problem i am facing:-

      my home network is connected to an ISP for example ABC and it is providing me an static IP address of 60.XXX.XXX.XXX. Now my office system is connected to a different network called XYZ and they have an internal as well as an external firewall with all other securities in place(what ever is required for an corporate network). Now what i would want to do is connect to my home pc using the RDC or any other software and browse my home PC. Since i am able to access my home PC from my laptop and vice versa i think the firewall on my home PC is configured correctly. Now there is also another issue with this. My cable company ABC says that they have blocked all HTTP ports my IP address so my system will not be getting any incoming HTTP requests. They also told me that port 80 and 1024 are blocked so i will not be able to set up and IIS and do a remote desktop web connection as explained in one of the articles in this website.

      I hope the problem is clear and i have provided sufficient info for this. Please do let me know if u need any other info.

      Thank you

        Have you tried RDP over HTTP, this can be installed by Add\Remove windows components | IIS | WWW Service on Win XP Pro.

          Hi,

          Yes i have and it still does not work because my isp has blocked all incomming HTTP requests. So i am unable to access my system. Any other options?

            TS

            Please make the following test:

            Use laptop and connect via dial up (without firewall) to your PC at
            home.

            If its works, then contact the company support staff for farther assistant.

            If the test would fail, then you may need to replace ISP or request from them to release the blocking to your computer.
