  • Remote access to home computer

    Hi.

    I am wondering all time why it's not possible to reach any (in my case it my computer) home computer from WAN? For example: I know my current IP, and i tring to ask netmeeting from another computer on WAN. What happen? May be my provider use NAT?

    You can use LogMeIn, it's a simple solution and I believe it's free. It will download a client on your home PC and when you need to access it, you go to LogMeIn.com and access your home PC.

    That's the easy way around it at least.

      How are you trying to access your home PC? Just by netmeeting? Do you have the ports forwarded in your home router to your PC's IP? Is the IP static?

        If you are using XP Pro you can just use RD. You'll need to do port forwarding on your firewall.

        Forward port 3389 to LOCAL ip of your computer. That should do it.

        If home version you will need something linke VNC or LogMeIn,

          Thank you for responce.
          The IP is dynamic, hovewer I know it every time I tried to connect.
          I tried to use netmeeting and remote access,
          My PC has XP pro.
          But generaly, is it possible to connect directly between two clients with dinamic IP on WAN?

            if you don't want to use logmein, the way to constantly know your IP is by using dyndns.org or no-ip.com

              Please answer the question. If you do not have the ports forwarded, then you will never get into your computer, as the router will not know where to send the request to.
