Windows 7: Proper exact address syntax?

Proper exact address syntax?

If I would like to point one PC at the exact address of another PC over the internet, NOT a local area network, how would it look?

http:293.86.45.567.123:192.168.0.199 (example, don't try it, probably some creep's ip, lol!)

I have tried googling syntax, address etc. but I am just lost, and the sites are too technical for me.

I need to be able to point my remote PC at my home PC and I have a dynamic public address. As it is just needed rarely, and only across town, I don't mind manually entering the new dynamic address if need be, I just don't know how properly syntax it. Do I need the port I forwarded in the address as well.

I will be doing a VPN connection with Windows (not 3rd party) and would like a PPTP connection. Once I have my setup configged and routed properly, which I think I do, it's just a matter of entering the ip address properly.

Thanks in advance, I wish I paid attention in Computers 101.....and on lol!

you would use ports and port forwarding.

Example.
173.164.26.65:81
could point to 10.28.43.2

and 173.164.26.65:82
can point to 10.28.49.253

you will use your router to set up port forwarding. Be sure to enable PPTP pass through.

PPTP is ticked in my router. Doesn't say Pass-thru though. Only thing I saw with PPTP.

I don't get how to do the rest though, meaning what to enter into the VPN location/address box.

I'm still lost, sorry. I don't even know how to explain how I'm lost. I know how to direct traffic for say bittorrent to my PC with a specific port.

This seems different though

Believe it or not its almost exactly the same
I forget the exact port... I have to look it up anytime I do any configuration for my vpn... you forward that to the machine you are going to be using.

Hi there
use Putty and Tunnelling -- IMO that's the easiest way of connecting to a Home Computer from a remote location and it often gets round Blocked Ports if you are trying to RDP for example to a Home computer from an Office where most of the ports other than 80 (or 8080) are blocked.


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

I am trying to have a VPN connection between my PC/network and a coworker/friend's PC.

So he can browse my network when he feels like it, or I can access my data when I am at his house.

My problem is how to enter the "Internet Address" properly so that his PC can find my network.

Do I just need to enter my public ip......my public ip + LAN address+port..


And how would I write it. I don't have a domain name or website name. I tried setting up stuff like that, way beyond me.

You should just need the public Ip no port for that unless you have it set to something besides default.

As you have access to both ends of the link you could do this by the use of something such as Logmein or my personal choice Teamviewer.

As you want access to your system whilst you are not there you may want to set-up the unattended option or you could just run the software on your system when you want to. Teamviewer fully supports VPN and does all the setup for you, It's free for personal use
