Help me find the IP/Port that runs through a server

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to find out the IP and Port numbers for 5 computers that run through a server. I tried ipconfig and ipconfig/all but i'm not sure which IP/Port are for each computer. I'm doing this for remote desktop for their home PCs and iPhones.

It won't work unless they all have routable IP address's (IE NOT 192.168). Do you want them to be able to RDP to your server, or access files off your server? It sounds like you need to setup a VPN.

arp -g wont work?

Try running the command prompt on the server and querying it's ARP table by typing

"arp -g" at the prompt. That should show you the servers ARP table.

They just want to access their work computer from home. They were able to with their old computers but we just got new ones. I guess the IP/Port is only needed for the iPhone app

Do they want their files or their desktop?

If they want their files you just need a web server running on the machine. If they want their desktop then you're going to have to look into the domain tree in Active Directory and try extend their login somehow through users and groups. I have no idea about Active Directory, though.

But anyways, running and arp request on the server will show you all the computers it knows about and their IP address (and MAC) so that should help you somewhat.

Did you make sure on each computer that RDP was allowed (older version of RDP for people with XP clients connecting to Win 7 computers) and that the worker is in the "Remote Desktop" group?

Yeah, I made sure it's enabled. They are running on XP

Are the new computers using the same IP addresses as their old computers? If the port forwarding wasn't changed it is still trying to send the traffic to the IP address, but there is no device with the matching IP address for them to access.

for the port for RDP the default is 3389, however if it was changed you will have to find out what it was by either going into the router and finding the port forward and you can also find the IP addresses there as well.
