Alright, heres how it works.
My campus has a network. I can access the network from anywhere on campus. The network also includes all university housing. It is an open network, so there are no blocks between building, and Im not sure if the actual network is behind a firewall, but the University does not block any ports.
I connect to the network, from my room, through a router. The router has an IP which is assigned to it by the network and is my own personal IP. It will not change until next year. My computer is assigned an IP address by my router. All I should have to do is forward the ports for RDC, but Im not sure how to actually log into my computer or access it.
For instance, I know how to do it on my own network. Lets say both computers are on my personal network, "Shiarua-Network". I should just have to set up both computer to all RDC and then open the connection program and type in Shiarua-Network\\"name of computer"
How would I go about doing this from a computer on campus. I would assume it would have a few components. First of all, possibly my universities IP, which should just be whatever IP is assigned to www.uwec.edu
. Then I would need my routers IP, the port, and the name of the computer on the network, correct?
