Help Connecting to Remote Desktop
I would like to connect to my home computer from work and through my iPhone.
I am running xp pro at home, and vista ultimate on my work laptop.
I am also using a wired router in my house, a dlink ebr-2310. I have tried opening port 3389 forwaded to my home computer ip address. The vista laptop does not connect, and the iPhone says the host colsed the connection.
I have also tried logmein. logmein interested me because of the iPhone app, a little expensive but may be worth it if I can get this to work. I closed the rdp port on my router. Installed logmein on my laptop and home computer. I can connect to my laptop through the home computer, but I cannot connect to my home computer through the laptop. Upon hitting connect I get a blank screen and my home comuter freezes.
I have not tried through the iPhone yet, because I have not bought the app yet, depending on success through the laptop.
Why will remote desktop work when I open the port?
Why is logmein not working on my home pc?
thanks for the help.
