I've been trying for a week to come up with a way so that I can set up a VNC server on my home pc so that I can connect to it while I am at work. I have tried everything under the sun and nothing. Maybe someone here can help.
I am using RealVNC. (Supposedly runs on port 5800)
I have a brand new Linksys WRT54GS Wireless G router (I thought my old router was unable to port forward so I bought a new one)
My ISP is Comcast.
I have in the router's page (192.168.1.1) set TCP protocol to forward port 5800 to this specific machine (192.168.1.101) says enabled and successful.
- When I start the RealVNC server it says the service is only connected
to 192.168.1.1 (not my external IP.. SEE
http://www.realvnc.com/support/portforward.html to see what I mean)
- I go to http://canyouseeme.org/ to test the port FAILED.
Instead of Port Forwarding I decide to enable DMZ
(the more extreme solution) on this machine 192.168.1.101
- Same results as above
I then discovered through IP CONFIG /ALL that I have a Dynamic IP
- I have registered a dynamic dns host at DynDNS (***.dnsalias.net) to
make my dynamic IP sort-o-static.
- I'm not sure what to do with this though. I leave my server running on my
PC and try to go to ***.dnsalias.net:5700 (5700 is the java app for
realVNC) and it times out. However localhost:5700 brings up the
java client correctly.
Anyone have any ideas what I can do so I can VNC to my PC from outside my local network. Or any other way I could get to my home pc, without going through websites that are probably already filtered by my companys filter.
Lots of Love
