Any Advanced Remote Deskop'rs out there?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I need some help from someone that is experienced with RDP. I have a home network with 3 different computers I'd like to access via RDP from outside my LAN. I have changed the listening ports so that the 3 computers' listening ports for RDP are 3389, 3390, and 3391. I have added the port to Windows Firewall as an exception. I have those ports forwared to their corresponding static LAN IP's in my router's setup. I have a DynDNS account and have the updater running.

Here's my question because to this point I've been unable to connect to 2 of the computers. When I put my domain name in, what am I supposed to put in for my credentials? Lets say my computers' credentials are as follows:

Comp 1(3389): Comp. Name: PC-01 -- Username: test/Password: test
Comp 2(3390): Comp. Name: PC-02 -- Username: test1/Password: test1
Comp 3(3391): Comp. Name: DC -- Username: test2/Password: test2

Lets say my DynDNS domain name is test@mydomain.com

Now Comp3 is my Server/Domain Controller. All these computers are on a domain but I'm trying to access Comp1/Comp2 with local accounts. Whenever I try to connect by putting in test@mydomain.com into the RDP field, the only computer it will accept credentials for is for Comp1 that has 3389 forwarded. It will not accept the credentials for either Comp 2 or Comp 3.

I know this is a special situation, but is there anyone out that has worked with RDP alot that knows what my problem could be?

It's one of these... try them all (yeah suxor lol)

test@mydomain.com(colon)port
\\port
/port

one of those should get your to route differently.

Ohh yeah.. you might try to see if the client end of RDP can be setup to use a different port. May just need to change its settings.

Nope that didn't work. And what do you mean by the client end of RDP?

When you have a 2 part software like this they label each part. Server is the part that runs on the machine that will be connected to, Client is the software running on the machine connecting to the other device. See if you can change what port RDP is using on the client side.

Why would I need to change the "listening" port for RDP on the client side? That doesn't seem to make sense. Plus I don't want to have to do that on every machine I use to connect to my home computers.

Something like a "Free DNS" service might work:

Free DNS is not his problem. The problem is each computer is setup to listen to for RDP on a different port (to avoid conflict) and that when he tries to RDP into a computer, it's only using the default port. We need to figure out how to make the RDP client side send out a request on a different port.

Hatesfury, you've definately nailed it. Now I just gotta figure out how to solve it.

You have to figure out how to make the RDP go out on a different port. That is the only way....

personally, for simplicity sake. I'd install VNC on all 3 computers. You could then RDP into 1 of them, and VNC from that one to the other 2. Will be easier, and adds another layer of security to your self, as even if someone did break the RDP, they'd then have to break the VNC.


NNNOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've got it! hahaha....

setup your router for remote login. Put all of your PC's back to using the standard port for RDP. Now. what you'll do is

go to Test@mydomain.com(: \\ / i forget which) 192.168.0.1 (or whatever the IP for your router is). You then can set your router to foward the default RDP port to whichever PC you need to get in. If you then later want to get into a different PC, you'd have to log back into the router and modify the port forewarding to do to a that PC..... lots of work tho
