    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.

    INFO:

    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

    For starters the default port used by realVNC is 5900 not 5800.

    You can get a list of what ports software is listening on by typing netstat -a in a command prompt.
