Hi,

 

I am sure someone has figured this out but I can't seem to get the hang of it.

 

I am using a Spark Huawei HG659b modem from home.

 

Have followed the official line here (https://www.spark.co.nz/help/internet-data/equipment/huawei/hg630b-gateway/port-forwarding-on-the-huawei-hg630b/)

 

However, the remote desktop connect just will not work if I enter the assigned IP address from Spark (Dynamic)

 

No problem when connecting within the home network in which I use the PC name.

 

 

 

Thanks.

Check:

 

  • RDP enabled on Windows 10 PC
  • Windows 10 firewall rules allow inbound RDP connection (port 3389) on necessary connections ("Home", "Work", "Public" etc)
  • You have a static IP assigned to your Windows 10 PC on your local network (i.e. 192.168.1.10)
  • You can RDP from another PC on your LAN via IP (i.e. 192.168.1.10)
  • You have port forwarding setup on your router to forward WAN port 3389 to your local PC IP (i.e. 192.168.1.10) port 3389.
  • From your Windows 10 PC check your WAN IP by https://www.google.co.nz/webhp?sourceid=chrome-instant&ion=1&espv=2&ie=UTF-8#q=what%20is%20my%20ip
  • Attempt to RDP to your WAN IP (port 3389)

 

 

Alternatively look into:

 

  • Chrome Remote Desktop
  • TeamViewer
  • LogMeIn...

 

 

EDIT: As @JamesL corrected it's port 3389 and as @Handle9 rightly points out this isn't the most secure approach; you should ensure you take appropriate security measures or look into one of the alternatives above.

Don't do it with port forwards - you are turning your windows box into an attack target for every d-bag on the internet. If you can't do a VPN with your device use teamviewer etc..

Also, it's port 3389 not 3089

 

But I would recommend against opening RDP to the internet

So setting a VPN service will be a better option IYHO? What about Hamachi?

The better alternative might be to use teamviewer
