Newbie question about firewall
Thu Sep 11 21:47:00 2003
Hello to the group!
This is my first post here, hope the question is not silly. I've read the
faq but that didn't help, so I hope the brain trust will have an answer :)
I've got a computer (Win2k) with RealVNC Server and ZoneAlarm firewall
running. I want to connect to that computer from my home computer using VNC
viewer. I'm connect to Internet via dial-up connection, so my IP address is
dynamically assigned and therefore always changes. The computer I want to
connect to has a static IP address I know.
Now, the faq says that in this situation I need to 'Add client' on Server
side, but the problem is I don't know the IP address I will be assigned the
next time I dial my ISP from my home computer...
Is there a way I can make this connection work? If needed, I can change the
firewall (it doesn't have to be ZoneAlarm, as long as it is free).
Thank you for your help!
