How can I connect to my local computer via a remote ip?

15:32, Posted by Usman Kokab, No Comment

Asked by   Syren
People outside my network already tried to connect and they succeeded, but I can't connect to my computer in my own network via a remote ip address.

I already enabled a DMZ host and configured a DHCP relay (both with local ip of computer I want access to filled in) on my router.

How can I do this?

Usman Ali Kokab Usman Ali Kokab  Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) is a Windows application that was introduced with Windows NT 4.0 and is included in Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7. The application lets you connect through a network to another Windows computer, log in to the computer, and use the computer as though you are sitting in front of it. You can also use RDC to connect to and manage a computer or server without a monitor, keyboard or mouse.

1 Click "Start," then type "remote access" into the search box. Click "Allow Remote Access to Your Computer."

2 Click "Allow Connections Only From Computers Running Remote Desktop With Network Level Authentication (More Secure)." Click "Select Users."

3 Click the "Object Types" button to search for users that you want to allow access to the computer. Click the "Locations" button to select computers on the network that you want to allow access from.
4 Enter a username or computer name in the "Enter the Object Names to Select" box, then click "Check Names" to ensure the names are valid. Click "OK." Click "OK" to close the Remote Desktop Users window, then select "Apply" and "OK."

Connect to Host

5 Press and hold the Windows key on your keyboard, then press R. Type "mstsc" into the "Open" box and click "OK."
6 Click "Options." Click the "General" tab and enter the name or IP address of the computer you want to connect to in the "Computer" box. For example, enter "bobscomputer" or "" if that is the computer name or IP address. Enter a username or domain\username into the "User Name" box.
7 Check the "Always Ask for Credentials" box to create a prompt for a password when you connect. Uncheck the box to use the saved password for the account.
8 Click "Connect." Enter the password for the user account, if prompted.
