I am trying to set up a remote connection from my work's notebook to be able to access my home pc. Now I know there are a lot of topics out there and trust me i read a lot, and even followed several tutorials with no luck! Also, just as a note, another pc on my home network is able to be remote controlled but since I opened another port, that shoudn't be a problem should it?
Anyway here is what I did:
I am using the no-ip address of my brother since it represents the same ip of course (There is no need for the DUC client to be running on my pc correct? since it is running on my brothers pc)
I enabled remote access from my computer.
I have a Thompson router, went to game and application sharing. There is one ready named Remote Desktop Connection which my brother is not using, instead he is using one named HTTPS with another port number. So I assigned this to my pc.
I changed the listening port of my pc from the registry. (Now if i understood correctly, the router's port and pc's port are not the same. I haven't understood this well... if someone can explain it to me)
Added this port to the windows firewall's exception.
Restarted my pc
Went to remote desktop connection. entered mynoipaddress.no-ip.org:registry's_port_number
And no luck. Can please someone tell me what is wrong??
thanks for any responses in advance!
