I want to be able to access my pc with VNC from a remote location. Because my pc is behind a router (TP-Link WR841N) with NAT enabled, I've forwarded the the required port (5900) to my pc's local IP-adress.
However if I try to connect with the VNC server from outside my local network, it will time out. The port appears closed as well via services like http://www.canyouseeme.org
Things I've tried:
- I've added allow-rules to both the windows firewall (which is disabled) and comodo antivirus (which is enabled), but this doesn't seem to help.
- I've also tried setting it all up for a slightly different port (5901)
- Finally I've tried this all with both TightVNC and RealVNC.
Other things of note:
- I've tried enabling VPN as well and have run into the same issue, but I haven't quite tested that as extensively as with VNC.
- I have another pc running Ubuntu in the same local network which is accessible with VNC, I've forwarded port 5904 on my router to 5900 to that pc's local IP (this shouldn't interfere right?).
Does anyone know something else I can try or where I maybe messed up?
