Hello everyone I was wondering one sets up rdp outside a local network on windows 8.1.
You need to forward a port from your router to your desktop's ip.
For example, if your desktop's ip address is 192.168.1.101 then you need to forward a port of your choice (let's say 5678 as an example) to port 3389 on 188.8.131.52
so it'd be something like this, depending on your router's configuration
External Port IP Address Internal Port
5678 192.168.1.101 3389
Then when you want to connect from outside the network you point to your RDP client to [your public ip]:5678
Or just install TeamViewer
yeah teamviewer is easier, but I would like to use the built in remote desktop application. Can you give me the proper sets to do all this?
I've just given you literally *all* the information you need
yeah im using a public network in my dorm. how do I obtain the ip address?
google to the rescue
yay I got it.
how do I forward the port though?
nvm jking I got it
hey man I got teamviewer to work which was a no brainer, but for the RDP built into windows I live in a dorm with public wifi how do I forward a port from the public wifi?
haha that's what I figured. so teamviewer is the best one?
