It will work from home, it is just better to use internal IP's then your WAN IP.

Either works, it can be logged in, or it can be at the log in screen prompt.

So gonna post this to see if I can get a lil help. I followed all the instructions.

I setup a domain at Dyndns.com, I set permissions on all my networked home computers to allow incoming remote desktop connections.

I altered the Port for each individual PC except for one which was left at default.

I went into my router and I forwarded the ports to the specific internal IP addresses and to match the modified port changes as per the first post.

Results?

1. Well I already tested that internally I can use the remote desktop clients from any computer into any other computer on the network.

2. I can use remote desktop from 2 of my computers inside the home network to remote into one specific computer by using the custom DynDNS address I created. The computer I can remote into from within the network was the only one left with default port settings...

3. Using my router tools, the router successfully pings the custom DynDNS address created.

4. Using the router tool, the router is unable to ping any of the addresses that have modified ports for example custom.dyndns.org:3390 fails to ping etc etc

5. I attempted to remote into the one computer with default port settings from a computer outside the network and was greeted with the failed to connect error window.

Router is a D-Link DGL 4500

yep, i started doing it this week @ school it's awesome.

its not 100000% or w/e better than remote desktop like the guy said above, but if your not a professional, it gets the job done rather easily.

Will probably end up doing that if I can't get this figured out - but wanna give this a shot just so I can learn a little something and in an attempt to get my wife to use it without having to install teamviewer while we are visiting family (since they all have OS's with a built in RDP)

makes sense, its a good learning experience and you could even set up your own remote data server using this which can come very handy.

as for actual advice though, i got none.

Hehe.

Well setup Teamviewer and it was definitely alot easier to setup and get working. Will probably be useful in the future. The big annoyances though were that Windows Media Center was unusable (black screened whenever opened via Teamviewer) and the rather crappoy resolution through the Teamviewer displays.

That said I made SOME headway with Remote Desktop.

I managed to be able to remote into ONE of the computers in my network from outside of my network while visiting family this weekend. Not only that but was also able to get an RDP client to work via my iphone as well

The bad part is that it ONLY worked on the computer with a default port setting. So now I have to figure out how to get the ones with changed port settings to work properly...

For now though using Remote Desktop connection seems to be my best bet for when I want to actually mess around with Windows Media Center
