Can you access your router's log-in page when you enter acoolname.dyndns.org into your web browser? Try this when you are home.

I have feeling you did not port forward correctly. Can you PM a screenshot of your router's port forward?

Sure thing, Riou.

When I get home I will get you the correct information. Hopefully we can get this fixed.

I'll let you know.

Yes, I can access my routers page using the DynDNS DNS address.

I have an earlier post about how Netstat -a -n doesn't bring up 3389 as a port on the computer I am trying to connect to. I just checked and it IS INDEED showing 3389 now as listening. This is good news.

Bad news is that canyouseeme.org doesn't see 3389 as open (apparently). Reason: connection timed out.

Not sure what to do about that. It seems like the port is open and listening, the DNS is working properly, but the Internet can't connect? Am I missing something, again...?

It is probably your Windows software firewall. Can your try disabling the software firewall or resetting it back to defaults?

It could explain why port 3389 shows up in netstat -a -n but why canyouseeme.org does not work. Since port 3389 shows up in netstat -a -n, that means you port forwarded correctly in the router. It is an issue on that computer from what I can tell.

This was the problem.

Apparently my Dad installed some stupid antivirus software on his computer. It was controlling the Windows Firewall permissions.

Uninstalled the antivirus, rebooted the computer, and now my connection is successful!

I must give my gratitude to you for your help. I truly appreciate it.

Thanks so much.

You are welcome and I am glad that I could be of help.
