Vista RDC ?

Posted: 02-13-2009, 06:45 AM
I am attempting to set up a RDC over the Internet. The host computer is
running Vista Ultimate and the client computers are running Vista home
Premium. I have opened up port 3389 on the router, which the host computer
is connected to and have given the host computer a static IP address via the
router. When I attempt to logon from a client computer using the IP address
of the host computer it opens up a grey background screen with a Log on to
Windows authentication screen, however it is attempting to logon to a
Windows 2003 Server and not the host computer running Vista Ultimate. I am
not sure if this logon is for the server at the ISP that provides the IP
address for the host computer or what is exactly going on.

I have disabled the antivirus and firewall in an attempt to get the host >
client connection going. After I am able to get that connection going I will
then deal with the antivirus/firewall issue.

Any ideas on where I am going wrong of further steps I need to take?

Thanks for any help,

Dave

Have you looked at TeamViewer? Works over any firewall and is free.....

Dave,

You need to connect to the WAN IP address of your router. Your router will
then redirect port 3389 to the host computer, provided you've set everything
up correctly.
