Can't Connect To CCTV Box Via VNC - UVNC Or Remote Desktop?
Aug 22, 2011
I have a PC that runs cameras covering the access to my house ( due to an earlier incident where someone thought my stuff would look better at their place ). It has been running fine with XP and a VIA C3 box for years, but the mobo died and so my woe begins...I have slapped together a D510 box with W7 32 Enterprise, but cannot get it to network properly. ATM it is propped on my dining table with Cat5 threatening to trip someone up, so I'm not really the flavour of the month in the house.
Regular file sharing ( looking at docs, pics, etc. ) is not a problem between the house PC and the CCTV box ( bidirectional ). The old CCTV box was controlled remotely using VNC with great success, and I was hoping to continue in the same vein. Unfortunately VNC cannot connect from the house box to the CCTV box, but will work the other way when initiated from the CCTV box, not very practical. UVNC will not work in either direction and will not loop back to itself, and Remote Desktop does not work either. Error messages are "server running as application" for UVNC and server unavailable ( words to that effect ) in VNC. Remote Desktop just times out. Firewalls on both machines have been off and on during testing with no apparent change. There is a Netcomm ADSL2 4 port modem that ties them together.
It should work, it did work, so I know it can work, but networks are not my strong suit so I am throwing it out for input here. I have been banging my head on this particular rock for about 10 hours and half a bottle of bourbon and it is 00:49 local time, so forgive me if I have failed to include the crucial nugget of information that will unravel this mess.Where should I start, or is there a no-fuss remote control software option for Windows 7 that I need instead?
On wireless (lenovo tabletx61) I cannot connect through the intranet - no problem connecting through internet. When I manage to connect through intranet connection is dropped quite often.No problem connecting via Ethernet cables.
We use Nortel VPN and the problem is that it's set so when you connect to it, you can only access company resources so no Internet. To mitigate that we use vmware and run Windows XP at the same time as our Windows 7 systems. I'd love to be able to use remote desktop though and connect to a system located elsewhere even another office computer and have that one on the VPN, but of course as soon you connect the remote desktop connection goes down with it.I'm just wondering if there's any ways around this. I'm assuming not, but I'm not sure how VPN fully works. Like if I had 2 network cards in the remote system, when I VPN in does it block connections from all network cards? Ideally I'd like to use something like Amazon Web Services since their Windows Server tier has the free option which is good, or will use another VPS type system running Windows Server.
I am trying to use my computer running Windows XP Home to remote desktop into my computer running Windows 7 Ultimate over the internet.The computer I am trying to connect to is listening on port 3389, has all sort of firewall exceptions sorted and is enabled to accept remote connections. The computer I am trying to use to connect has no firewall currently (I have disabled it just to get this working).
And yet when I try and connect using the ip address of the host computer I receive the message "remote desktop cannot connect to the remote computer for one of the following reasons"... and so on.
Remote Desktop can't connect, so I've got four servers in the same LAN. Whenever I try remotly access the web server, the message (Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons: 1. Remote access to the server is not enable. 2. The remote computer is turned off. 3. The remote computer is not available on the network) The thing is that I can connect to all servers with any desktop computer in the network, but when I try to do it in my laptop (that is connected to the same LAN) I've got access to the other servers but not to the web server. Sometimes I had to restart this server and works fine for a little while.
I am having problem connecting to my work PC via VPN Cant ping and RDP. I sometimes need to log into my work PC to check out a problem. I connect via VPN and I can access servers (using Citrix and local intranet sites) that can only be accessed once connected to my work domain. So it looks like the VPN actually works fine.
But I cannot Remote Desktop Connection to it. I also tried to ping the PC using a command prompt. Using the command prompt, I ping MyWorkPC And I can see that it tries to ping MyWorkPC.domain.name.co.za. So it looks like it sees the MyWorkPC on the network. But all pings fail.
A work colleague tried to remote connects to MyWorkPC from his home PC and he can successfully connect. So I do believe that the work network and PC is setup correctly. I am running window 7 Ultimate SP1 (32bit) with a 3G dongle in a router. I also have Avast antivirus installed on my PC. I was not sure if the router or the antivirus was the issue so I tried:
1.Removing the 3G dongle and attach it to my USB port on my home PC directly. No luck 2.Some blogs said that the P2P or IM shield on Avast might be the problem so I disable it. No luck 3.Then I uninstalled Avast completely to see if it has any shield that might still block it. I restarted. No luck
I am attempting to set up a remote desktop connection to my home media server so I no longer need to keep a keyboard, mouse, and monitor plugged in to it when I need to use it. I am running Windows 7 Home Premium on both systems. I am sure the firewall is not the problem, as I have tried to connect with it disabled. I have also made sure to allow remote connections on the server. I know the DIR-825 supports UPnP, which works with Remote Desktop, so there should be no problem, but something is not working. I have tried disabling UPnP, setting up a virtual server, port forwarding, and assigning a permanant IP to the server, to no effect. Something is blocking my remote connection requests. Keep in mind, I am not even trying to do this over the internet, just over my LAN!
I'm trying to connect to my home laptop from work. The home laptop is connected to DIR-655 router. I set up the internal and external ports to 3389 using both TCP and UDP protocols with the Application as "Remote Desktop". From my work PC I enter the external IP with :3389 and it fails to connect. I have also tried accessing internally which is failing too. All computers are running Windows 7 Home Premium Remote Access is enable on all.
I have two computers side by side 192.168.1.7 and 192.168.1.8 both running xp pro sp3. On 8 I can RDC to the 7, but on 7 I cannot RDC to 8. I can see port 3389 listening on both using netstat -a. But 7 just can't RDC connect to 8. 7 cannot ping 8 either. I have the firewall turned off on 8, I had tried allowing RDC 3389 earlier with the firewall but that didn't work either.I don't have any extra firewalls running.Life will be like perfect, if I can just RDC to 8.Both are on the same wired belkin wireless router, 4' from itl.I tried taking the no ping no rdc computer to work and it didn't work there either.
I successfully connected to my windows xp pc through the remote desktop connection client on my macbook and now I am unable to connect to the internet on the pc. All that it says is acquiring network address. I know that it is not an isp or router issue because all of the other computers on the network are able to connect just fine. I tried using system restore but it said something to the effect of windows can not restore to this point, no changes were made to your computer. This happened with multiple different restore points.
I have a user that is in a hotel with a Windows 7 laptop. He is connected to the hotel's public network and it is set as a public network in windows network and sharing center.Usually from home, which is a private network, he can log onto our VPN and then use Remote Desktop to control his work computer (which is Windows XP) here at the office; however, from this hotel, he can still connect to the VPN and access shared drives and all, but he cannot connect to any computer using remote desktop.I've tried everything, allowing remote connections for public in the firewall, even changed the network from public to private and he still cannot connect. Still, he can connect just fine from home.

I am facing some issue in LAN network.I have connected one desktop( win 7) and another desktop (win xp) to the TP link router. Both the computers got ip address and able to share the internet. But both the computers are not in the same network. That is they cant PING each other. hence they are not visible to each other.
I am in kuwait and I have a CCTV camera in Philippines. It is setup with IP 126.96.36.199:3130. I can ping it but I am unable to connect through browser. I am working behind a router. Anything I need to do on my network in Kuwait to be able to connect to it?
after being able to see the cctv on the local network and remotely, we are simply not able to connect remotely again. This happens several hours after leaving site. The clients ip seems to be unchanged from last time, and we do get a " resource online but isn't responding to connections attempts" message from IE8. The ports have never actually shown as open from online port verification sites, but again, we were able to see the cams via 3g and from another town just fine.And we can see them on the locally. I'm convinced it has to be some setting on the router relevant to port forwarding.
Have just been trying to install Remote Desktop between two XP pro laptops When I try to log on I get a black screen with the connection bar at the top with the name of the remote computer and after about thirty seconds it drops the connection. The remote laptop comes up with logon screen but it isn't visible on the on host machine.I have followed all the instructions including file sharing enabled remote accesss etc, Both machines show up on network map and can ping each other.
To use Remote Desktop Connection, is it really this easy:Open up remote desktop connection on your Host PC --- type the IP of the computer you want to access, then click connect --- As long as "Allow Remote Desktop" is enabled on the PC you are trying to connect to, your attempt will be successful
We have a server which in addition to other services is used to stream live hi-def video from our building during special events.We use a software video/audio production mixer which works very well. But we now would like to make a change in the system.Is it possible/practical to use Remote Desktop via the second - as yet unused - LAN in our server. We really would like to put the operators in a different location where they have both video and in-person view of the event being streamed. But we don't want to use more bandwidth on the LAN...the production mixer handles a *lot* of uncompressed video and tends to be a bandwidth hog.
I have a home network and I routinely connect from my laptops to my wired desktop via Remote Desktop. Routinely, that is, until I replaced my old wireless router with a D-Link Wireless N router. But now, after the change, I can no longer remote desktop in. I *am* able to ping and file share with that computer, just no remote desktop.
I opened a computer in other network via remote desktop(because I forwarded port in router)....and tried to access other computers in the network via remote desktop again from that computer but after I done, I don't know how to close the secondary remote desktop. There was one close button on the top, but if "close" it, whole rdp connection was closed. The secondary rdp connection is still open in the computer.
I have a PC behind a DSL router. In my PC (WinXP SP3) I have a virtual machine also running WinXP SP3. I would like to access the VM via remote desktop. Since I have a dynamic IP, I use the(url)tool to solve the problem. I installed the no-ip sync tool in the VM. Now when I write my no-ip address in the remote desktop from my office, I will access my host system, and not the hosted VM. Does any knows how I should configure things in order to get access to the virtual machine and not to the host machine
I have some iMacs that I manage for, in addition to my primary PC computers, such as my Toshiba Windows 7 laptop, which is what I am currently most concerned with. What I would like to do, is Remote Desktop Control (I'll abbreviate that as RDC) these mac computers through the network from my Windows PC. I am aware that this is possible with either Google Chrome, or by checking an OSX setting that will allow for VNC applications to connect, but I would prefer it if there was some way to RDC these iMacs from my Windows laptop without needing to change their settings or install software-something like how Mac-Mac RDC connections work, where I can just select a computer from the network, type a password, and go.
Basically, I rebuilt my network over the weekend, to include a subnet, and can no longer connect my desktop to the remote PC. My old router was reset to defaults and re-configured. My PC has been wiped, reinstalled, and fully updated.The error I receive is "Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons: etc" I've only seen this error in the past when the PC I connect to was powered down. I have confirmed that everything is still set up properly on the PC I'm trying to connect to via an associate, and it is not powered down.
1. I went into Windows firewall to allow Remote Desktop through, but it looks like that only needs to be set for the PC I'm trying to connect to. (Yes/No?)
2. I've forwarded port 3389 from the old router to my PC.
3. I haven't done anything yet to the new router, because I really can't tell if I'm doing the right things. The very first time I connected to the remote PC, it went right through, and I didn't have to change anything in the old router (I think - it's been awhile). I really don't know where to go from here, and it looks like the setup options I've found in the forum so far (static IP, port forwarding, Windows firewall changes, etc.) leave me with more security risks than I had on the old network, and there seem to be some conflicting opinions about the setup process.
I am having trouble connecting to my home computer from my work computer via the Windows Remote Desktop Connection app.On my home computer (win 7 pro) I have:
1. Allowed incoming remote desktop connections
2. Verified that the firewall is open for RDC
3. Forwarded port 3389 on my router to my devices static IP
4.Verified that I am using the correct IP (Router has a dynamic IP but I called home and had my wife read the current IP # from whatismyip.com)
5. Setup an account on the home computer that is password protected
I am connecting from a win XP pro computer.I receive 0% packet loss with reasonable time delay when pinging my home IP from the work computer.I also asked a family member to try from a different location (using Vista Ultimate) with the same result Error is that connection is never established and I am never prompted to logon to the home computer.I can connect via RDC when on the home network.
Is there any free tool like lanvisor ???I have 50 computers in my lan and wish to monitor all those computers during their online examinations ... I need a free tool which will autostart in all clients so that i can sit in one computer monitoring everyone.
REmote desktop connection times out when there is no activity, I mean I open rdp to work computer from home ,If I am away from the computer I am not using keyboard , after few minutes I get a blank screen and if it is very longthe connection times out and I have to relogin to my computer, I need suggestion on how to retain the connection so that no blank screen appears and I alos dont loose connection .
So i'm trying to set up remote desktop connection for my desktop at (xp pro, sp2).
I've went through all the steps:
- allowed users to connect remotely (system properties)
- added to firewall exceptions
- opened up port 3389
I've disabled firewall and virus protection for now as well to test.
It works fine when I try connecting from my laptop at home by opening up the remote desktop program, and entering the local static ip address that i've configured on the desktop (i.e. 192.168.x.x);
however, when I try to connect outside of this network (on the road or office), I can't seem to connect (yes, I replaced the ip 192.168.x.x with the public ip of the desktop which I got from whatsmyip.org). I also can't ping the public ip of the desktop (can only ping the 192.168.x.x ip of the desktop)
Again, router port is open to port 3389, firewall is turned off on both the desktop and laptop, and virus protection is off.
