    i was wondering how to setup remote desktop behind a router, basically i have 3 pcs's all behind a Linksys BEFSR41 router. the problem is, when behind the internal network.. (all comps have IP addresses starting at 192.168.blah) and i can't seem to get the remote features working.. so how do i setup the router, so i can use pc's on my network, be able to do stuff on them.
    also, is it possible to connect to friends computers who are also behind routers?
    are there any posts on here that might explain this better for me? kinda confused!!

    You have to open the port on the firewall and forward it to the computer you want to connect to.

    I have the same problem...

    We have two computers on the network.
    External ip is 185.etc
    PC 1 has ip
    PC 2 has ip

    Connected through a HUB.

    Using Norton Firewall

    How do I "forward port" to one computer?
    And if I do that , can I do the same on the other computer, and be able to connect to both?

    using the linksys router type in web browser address bar

    then it should ask for login and pass
    password probably is "admin" if you havent changed it
    from there u can forward all the ports u want

    dunno about the forwarding ports to two comps tho....wonderin that myself
    maybe if forward the ports twice.....hmmmm

    What ports do I forward?
    (not using a linksys router, but a mini-hub, see my network setup here )

    so forwarding ports 3389-3389 should work?

    i got it to work within the network, or behind the router if you will, now i am wondering how i can connect from a friends house say.. and both parties have routers.. ??

    btw thanks elderec.. posts were helpful.. i still need to read it a few more times.. to make sure i am getting everything understood ok.

    ok, i got it working, from work, and from inside my computer, quite easy to get working from either.

    my next question.. can you make it so when you connect to someone.. say an internal pc in my home network, or anyone for that matter, can you make it so they can see what you are doing also.. or..?

    Installing a VNC server on winXP violates the eula (smirk) but it's supposed to work on XP. I haven't tried it so I don't know, but it works great on win9x.

    checkout VNC here:
