I have tried to install the components needed to run the remote web connection feature on my home computer. But it don´t work!!

When I try to connect from my laptop or elsewhere, it will not find my computer.

My homecomputer is connected to the internet via a Cisco ADSL-router, with DHCP ip-adresses, is this a problem?

Anybody knows a solution, or a proper tutorial to get it to work?

Cheers - Jesper/DK

To be honest I havent got round to trying it myself.

Do you have a Firewall preventing access?

Homecomputer (XP) must have remote access installed

I take it your talking about the remote desktop stuff in xp.

Check that your ISP/net connection is not blocking port 111 (remote procedure call) - if it's blocked it won't work.

How are you indicating which machine to connect to ? are you putting in the IP address or a FQN ?

BTW: I wouldn't use the IIS web browser stuff if it's not absolutely necessary. If you have the remote machine configured to allow desktop sharing and have the remote desktop connection program in Accessories - > Communications you can use this and avoid the whole IIS situation.

But it is a killer feature!! well worth getting working - I can do everything (bar plugging in network cables) from home now rather than go into work ;) ;)
