Re: Remote Desktop Fails To Connect To My PC
I have a Linksys WRT54GL wireless router at home. In the "Applications and
Gaming" tab I forwarded port 3389 (used for RD) to my internal IP address
(e.g. 192.168.1.100). The external IP address that would be used to connect
from an RD client is found in the "Status" tab under IP Address.
So from work, I connect using an RD client on my work desktop to the
external IP address I mentioned (e.g. 70.987.234.11). The router will then
forward the connection request to the internal IP address you defined in the
router and connect!
Hope this helps.
