Heya. Fortunately, a popular question:
Hope that helps!
> I want to remotely control my pc at home from my office.
> At home I am running windows xp professional sp 2 behind a netgeat dg834 router.
> At work I am running behind a proxy server which I have no control over and cannot touch.
> I have opened port 3389 (this is used for windows remote desktop) on my router at home and done the port forwarding to my pc. I can see my router on the net because I can administer the router.
> This work fine from one pc to another at home locally but I cannot get this to work from office to home so I wonder if VNG personal can do the job, I know port 80 is open at work (if i am not mistaken this is used for http ??? please excuse me I am a bit of a novice re networking) and I think port 3389 is open because i know the IT guys use windows remote desktoping (they seem to want to keep it quiet though and are not too helpful).
> So can I set up the vng server at home and the viewer at work with the limitations that I have ... I could I get set up my pc at home as a web server (IIS ???)if that would help - though I have no idea whatsoever at to how!!!!!!!!!
> Thanks for any help
