Setting up Remote Desktop Connection

Ok I'm super new at the whole RDC thing, I've never actually done it but once, and that was from my computer to someone elses computer.

What I am aiming to do is be able to connect to my computer from a work computer so that I can check my mail and such, check on my torrents, etc.

How do I set it up so that I could randomly connect to it throughout the day?

Thx

Well firstly what you want to determin mate is does your work have a firewall that blocks non standard ports?

If it does, there is a registry hack you can use to change the RDC port - otherwise there is a great bit of software you can get called RemotelyAnywhere that allows remote control of your pc via java/html.

That I'm not sure of.... I know that we get help from the helpcenter where they can take over our screens and fix stuff via a java applet.

I don't care which program I use as long as I can get the job done and it doesnt require the installation of additional software on the work compy.

In that case this: http://www.remotelyanywhere.com/ is your best solution.

All web based, and allows much more than just basic remote control as well

It will ask what port you want to run it on, enter 443, and open that port on your firewall. This way you won't have any problems if your company has a port blocking firewall.

Have u guys heard of the onion router [tor] ???

its a program that sends all traffic thru ports 80[http] and 433[https] (usually always open) it encrypts it and bounces it bout a few servers its for privacy but it also circumvents firewalls .. run it on the RDC client and Host Machines and the firewall wont b a prob

I have a guide I could do on this as well as some free alternative software. Would you like me to do one for you Frag? I can do it tomorrow, as we are going out to the pics tonight, and we won't be back until later on.

That would be great PV... I got RemotelyAnywhere and it works great but I still think the guide would be good for anyone else interested in doing this.

Thanks mate.
