So I am wanting to setup my PC for remote desktop. I sort of have it working...I can access it internally by either the computer name or the private/router IP address (eg 192.x.x.x). The problem is I can't access it by typing the TRUE IP...which I will need to be able to do to access it from outside. Anyone know why this is? I have windows firewall setup for Remote Desktop...I've tried disabling windows firewall, disabling my router firewall etc. FYI the same PC which is the host is the one I am trying to access. So really its only the config of one PC I need to get right...I can connect to this and logon to Remote Desktop with the local IP or the computer name but not the true IP. I have forwarded ports in my router too btw. Help me please!
