I've worked in IT since 1998, gaining experience in every aspect of technology along the way. From building computers and fielding customer support calls, I went on to deploy VPNs and manage CRM systems, set up and manage an ISP and two data centers, re-architect several large websites, and write software for DOJ, CBP, US Army, Cooke Communications, and many others.

I'm now working as a full-time .NET developer for IOTA Solutions, but also playing a major role in driving and implementing new technology for the company. In my spare time, I debug and play with a lot of open-source software on both Windows and Linux.

comment Is there a way to natively share screens in Windows 7?
Sure, things like TeamViewer and Citrix products. Why won't remote assistance meet your requirements? It does allow screen and input sharing, it just has to be initiated by the person sitting at the computer you're connecting to. It's easy enough to walk them through sending you an invite in the initial contact. Check the second link.

You can't share the screen and mouse using standard RDP initiated remotely (i.e. by you) unless the machine you're connecting to runs a Windows server OS.

comment Ping a device over a NAT
So are you trying to ping other devices connected directly to the university WiFi or ping the devices on your home LAN? If it's the devices at home, you won't be able to do that without setting up a VPN. I would take Frank's advice above and set up your project in a virtual environment. If that isn't possible, e.g. the devices can't be virtualized, you could bring them on-campus and set up an ad-hoc private network using your own switch.

comment Ping a device over a NAT
What other devices have you tried to ping when connected to your university's Wi-Fi? Can you ping the default gateway assigned by DHCP?

comment No icon on my computer anywhere in Windows Vista sp2 points to netbeans
It should just be a standard executable. On my PC it's " C:\Program Files\NetBeans 8.0.2\bin\netbeans64.exe". Find the file in Windows Explorer, right-click it and select Send to... Desktop (create shortcut).

Did you install a desktop environment during the OS install? If so, have you tried startx after logging in?
