I'm on a cable connection - so my setup is Cable modem -> Belkin F5D7231-4 (4-port wireless router/switch) -> wired connection to my desktop.
I'm tryingn to set up remote desktop to work through a webserver, so I can connect using internet explorer.
I'm running IIS with the remote desktop option on port 3390, and I have remote desktop enabled on port 3389.
The setup definately works because I can go to another computer on the LAN and use: http://mylocalip:3390/tsweb
And it brings me to the remote desktop sign in screen; I can then log in and control my desktop from another machine on the LAN.
I have set up port forwarding on my router to forward 3389 and 3390 (both TCP and UDP) to my local IP. When I go to www.canyouseeme.org, it can see the services running on 3389 and 3390.
However, when I use my external IP address, I just get a "cannot find server" or "operation timed out"...etc.
I know the setup is working because it's fine over the LAN, but for some reason it's just not working through the external IP. I've turned of the firewall on the router, and even put my IP outside the firewall using DMZ - still nothing. I've triple checked everything, and tried everything I can think of.
Any ideas?...thanks in advance
