I know that when you surf the web, websites can log your IP & MAC address.If you get my jist, I don't want my laptop to be flagged on a few web sites I have been on.My plan is to use another pc, that has a wireless braodband dongle from a mobile phone company.The pc will be attched to the wireless router via Ethernet, but banned from access the web via the router. This way I can connect remotley from my laptop.

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.
Is it possible to obtain details for computers that are connecting to my wireless network? I can see their mac and ip addresses. I want to get details like computer name, operating system and other details if possible.
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.
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.
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 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.

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.
My problem is when i try and connect a printer from windows 7 that is connected to a local pc via usb onto a remote desktop it doesnt connect but when i try and connect from wins xp it does.

It says it cannot connect to printer but when i try this method on an xp computer it accepts it.
I have a problem connecting to VPS with Windows XP Remote Desktop Connection.The error I'm getting is:"Remote Desktop Disconnected - The remote connection has timed out. Please try connecting to the remote computer again."I am not behind any network, firewall, router...I tried to turn off firewall and antivirus programs to see if they are blocking it. It didn't work.I could find from Microsoft support site refer to the server side configuration. But I know problem isn't with server, because I am able to connect from another PC (notebook running windows 7 with wireless connection). It is working straightforward with default settings.Are there any settings that need to be changed in Windows XP for RDC to work?
My computer stopped being able to Remote Desktop to my server on my network. My backup software also doesn't recognize my server. But, I can access its folders using Windows Explorer. Any other PC on the network can remote desktop to the server and connect. What happened to my machine? This message appears when i try to connect: "Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of the following reasons:
1) Remote access tot he server is not enabled
2) The remote computer is turned off
3)The remote computer is not available on the network
Make sure the remote computer is turned on and connected to the network, and that remote access is enabled."
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'm having some trouble connecting to my computer remotely via my iPad.I have a fairly strict router so i installed and am running Hamachi as my network through which i connect to my server computer via another computer. I realized as I was writing this that the reason i could not connect to my server computer via the Hamachi address was because my ipad is not connected to the Hamchi network. When i try to connect via the ip address i get from whatsmyip.org i simply get an error. I have absolutely no idea where to go from here, and I would really like to have remote access to my server computer from my ipad.
I have already successfully port forwarded my router and am able to connect to my mine craft server from anywhere on the Internet. Now id like to be able to remotely access my server from the Internet and install plugins or whatever. What are the basic steps to accomplish this? What port number should I use? Can I setup passwords so not just anyone can remotely connect? And can I limit which directories on the server's hard drive can be accessed remotely?
