Remote Desktop under different network

How to remote desktop under different network, what are the ports need to forward?

I've have a computer at home and I would like to remote desktop, I've forwarded port 3389 to the destination computer in the router, but I still cannot remote. But when I am in the same network, I can remote.

Need help on this, I personally think that there is some settings I've overlook. My client computer is running win7 ultimate x86 build 7600, my destination computer is running the same version of OS. Please help~~ thank you

Hi, remote desktop can be very very tricky to setup manually. It's much easier to use a solution such as Windows Live Mesh or Teamviewer

If you have any queries don't hesitate to ask.

Welcome!

First, to eliminate as many factors as possible, disable any firewalls you might have.

Then, forward something like this:

The .35 part is my IP address. Modify that to match your computer's IP address.

Why... it's just more bloat --and win7 has tons of that-- and it offers no new functionality at all.

This is a settings problem not a capability problem.

Make sure the remote settings are configured like mine:

Also make sure your user is added to the allowed list.

On your client, disable any firewalls too.

That's what I was thinking...need to give rights to use RDP to users as well.

I've done that too, file attached is the print screen that I've done under [Allow remote assistance], still no luck. I am thinking, could it be the ISP? is there any possibility on this?

Make sure to set a static IP on your host. The 35 can be replaced with just about any number you choose.

Now just to confirm, the syntax in Remote Desktop is your External IP:Port. If you don't enter any port number, it defaults to 3389, which is forwarded in your router.

I've done that steps too, I've also forwarded the port to the IP i've set. So if i don't forward any port, by default its 3389?
