How can I setup Remote Desktop Connection (RDP) when I've exhausted all my known searchable resources?
I am attempting to set up Remote Desktop Connection on my Windows 7 Ultimate version and have followed and/or read every page on the subject through Google's third page. I am at a loss on how to proceed on successfully connecting to my host PC from a remote location using RDP.
I am now successfully able to connect to my host computer from within an intranet connection using local routing numbers 192.168.1.1XX. However, when I attempt to connect it using my WAN IP address, I am unable to connect.
I have followed the instructions on PortForward.com for my router (DIR-615 upgraded to latest firmware available on DLink.com) http://portforward.com/english/routers/port_forwarding/Dlink/DIR-615/Remote_Desktop.htm
I have checked my port "open" status on http://canyouseeme.org/ and receive the following message when attempting to connect: Success: I can see your service on 188.8.131.52 on port (3389) Your ISP is not blocking port 3389.
After all of this, I am unable to connect to my RDP using my WAN IP even though I can connecting using my intranet IP.
I am sitting behind a Motorola Surboard Cable Modem fed into a DLink DIR-615 router. According to canyouseeme.org, my port forward is active. How can I debug this issue? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
