Here's an easy example of connecting to a remote MySQL server for example

I am not that tekk saavy at all. I have no idea about what ssh is, it took me forever to get this far.

I managed a direct connect on PS3 Media Server from PC to PS3, with ICS thru my WiFi, managed to add exceptions thru the firewall, had full function on everything, after some tweaking, then I tore it all down after I read that it might have been what was causing errors when I was trying to connect this VPN.

Now, I have countless hours on this and I am completely stumped, and frustrated.
I'm gonna give up. I have spent two days on this and I have had it. Didn't think a VPN was this hard. Thanks though.

I would ideally like to do this just with Windows. Kinda throws Virtual PRIVATE Network out the window when using a 3rd party route with something like TeamViewer

I want to straight shot from his PC to my network.

I have no idea what ssh is or the other like ipSec etc. or SQL

I just saw short vids on YouTube on how to do VPN, looked simple. Nothing but problems.

I'll get back to you on this if I figure it out. I'm hating that I even tried this, right about now.

I will have to say, On my first attempt to set up a vpn I went crazy... It took me numerous hours and the hardest thing was not the part on the operating systems it was the configuration of the router's firewall. It has to be perfect. I just changed firewalls and forgot to swap over my config and now I have about another 3 hours of annoying and trying pain and chain smoking....

There is a VERY simple solution to what you're trying to do. LogMeIn was mentioned earlier, but you don't need their remote control product. What you need is their Hamachi product. It creates a virtual network between as many PCs as you wish. Just download and install it on both machines, create a network and join both computers to it. Then you'll be able to connect shares, etc. between the two machines regardless of the routers, ports, etc. between them.

Sounds interesting. I will look into it.

This is where I have gotten to so far, and it looks promising.

When I left my house tonight, to go to my buddy's place, my Network and Sharing Center had me connected to one Network: NORAD C.C. with both wired and WiFi adapter.

I tried to access the VPN I set up at my house, and I came up with failure yet again......

But, when I got home I saw this in Network and Sharing Center......

Now, to me, I am assuming that this means my query made it past my router and to the host PC. Could this be.

And if so, it seems like it is just a matter of Windows firewall, which I reset to defaults recently.

Is my logic sound, that I managed to at least navigate thru my router. I hope so because I think I can do the firewall, I would just need a little advice.

Can anyone tell me if my logic is sound, and/or help me to proceed?

Thank you all for your patience, and I apologize for losing mine.

Thanks in advance to all.

EDIT: AS THIS THREAD IS ABOUT SYNTAX OF THE IP ADDRESS....................

I should add.....I entered strictly my public ip address to get this far.

Bump.....

Could this be why I can't connect?

I have GRE 47 protocol inbound exception now in firewall, which I just discovered....wasn't. Still can't connect.

Any other advice.

Maybe I should have posted in the Network section.

Maybe I should have posted on another forum.
