You all have convinced me to write an FAQ about this sometime this weekend. Be on a lookout for it
Good stuff. I figured the firewall for the campus would pwn DynDNS info from coming in\\going out. I guess they're running wide open and have "internet access" sectioned off from the real network. You are right, he has made his own network, within their network (read he's made a subnet). Either way should work, mine being easist, yours being most useful, if the network will allow it.

If i read right you're using RD to get from college to home, and that works brilliantly. From inside the campus network alone, RDP with port forewarding on his own router will work fine and is much simpler to setup.

That doesn't answer my question though....what's the topology of this network now? I don't understand!

Definitely. I would use your way, but our network re-assigns IP's whenever a computer is unplugged. If I went to the wall and unplugged and plugged in my ehternet cable 10 times, I would have 10 different IP's in that span. The network also just sometimes changes IP's for no reason whatsoever, so that is why I had to set up the dynamic DNS. But I love the DYNDNS. Quite possibly the coolest thing ever. With that and Webguide on my HTPC, I can access it anywhere.

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?
post #15 of 31
you would probably access it with the ip your router receives
post #16 of 31
See this is where I'm not so sure.

Let's say (for the sake of simplicity) that the school's gateway (router) IP is 192.168.1.1......that means your router is anything but192.168.1.1.....if you did it yourself, usually people do something like 192.168.2.1......and if you let the router do it automatically, they usually do 10.0.0.1.

So let's say 10.0.0.1 is your gateway....and you go to another dorm room that has a linksys router set as 192.168.2.1...it's not gonna be as easy as RDPing into it...

Right now Im inside the university network. I shouldnt need to worry about my schools router at all.

The school assigns my router an IP address (much like when you connect via DSL, your IP address is assigned to you by your ISP). The router has its own IP (192.168.0.1) which I can use to connect to it. The router assigns my computer an IP address (192.168.0.199)
post #18 of 31
I was thinking about it wrong.....

If you do what HatesFury said in his first post, that will work fine.

I was assuming that other dorms/rooms/whatever would have their own separate network/subnet themselves and that's when things get complicating.

Yeah, and actually I was totally wrong all the way around, lol.

From within the network, it doesn't matter what subnet your on....as long as you forward the proper ports on the router that controls said subnet. So, to reiterate what hates said, just forward port 3389 on your router to your computer and connect to your router via RDP from elsewhere in the netwrok.


Damn....what the hell was wrong with me? That's elementary.....

I lost this round.......
