right ,

on the routers, you need to forward port 3389 TCP to the internal ips. Once this is done, on box A go start ->run->mstsc and type the EXTERNAL ip of the other box, it will now connect to that box. this will work both ways.

Remote Connection

Hi, can anyone point me in the right direction to a tutorial on how to set up a connection to my home pc connected to a static IP on Plusnet from my daughters pc on a Broadband connection with a different supplier. I also would like to access applications on either PC. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

I would recommend that you use VNC - http://www.realvnc.com - which will enable you to access the PC as if it were in front of you.

Yep - VNC is probably the best way to go...

Is the PC you want to connect to using a USB modem, or a router?

Hello Ian, both PC's are using Routers via Lan cards. My ISP is Plusnet and my daughter is on Twest.

Which ever method you use you will have to open up the port on both routers and point it at the correct pc.

Thanks for the info everyone, but I am still slightly confused. Both PC's are using ADSL routers, each one connected to the telco provider (BT and Telewest)... As a numpty here wanting to connect both pc's with each one having different different I.P.'s on different networks... eg if I do ipconfig/all I see the address for the local network the local machine uses but no info on the static address Plusnet has assigned to me, even though I know what it is. Given the 2 pieces of information, local address on the home network and that assigned by Plusnet how do I then get both machines talking... Both machines are on different networks and more than a hundred miles apart.... Any help would be appreciated. Thanks Paul
