Howdy,

i'm using VMWare Workstation 9 something (Haven't checked recent updates but that's the edition I have).

I have made a win8.1 preview vm. I had to install real vnc server inside it, in order for me to connect to it properly with the ipad remotely (using also real VNC). I do not have team viewer. (Can't afford presently).

I understand that vmware offers option to remotely connect via port 5900, or any port you specify.

Problem is, Regardless if I use my pc's ip address, or the separately assigned ip of the vm itself, the ipad won't connect to it via that option, only through real vnc server.

I am trying to have both a ubuntu 13.04 & win8.1 preview running on vm's (can run easily), and remotely connect from ipad.

I have a DGL-4500 router, and have attempted port forwarding, restarting the vm's, restarting my pc, and no dice.. Cannot connect via the vmware software access point.

For my ipad to be on outside networks, there are a few open routers near by my house. I also can teather 3-4mbps off my personal galaxy nexus, or my work phone, galaxy infuse. Both have full, 4g bar's at my house. (Neither are LTE). Both have 6gb plans for data services.

Any thoughts? I've tried googling, but maybe I don't know the words for it obviously, or the right phrase to search for.

Any help appreciated,

- Le_Loup
