Solved: getting remote access to my server

Q: Solved: getting remote access to my server

Sorry if this topic is in the wrong section. Not sure where it goes.

I would like to setup my server to allow remote access from home. It's on an office network which is separated from the WAN by a router. So long as I'm on this network, I can access the server from any computer connected to it. I enter the https URL of my server through IE and it brings me to the helm interface (the one that comes with Windows Server 2003). I can click on Maintenance and then on Remote Desktop, and it opens a new window with the server's desktop displayed.

If I'm somewhere other than the office network, I can't access it. IE gives me a "can't find webpage" message (or something along those lines). How do I setup my server to access it from outside the office network. I'd prefer to have a similar graphical interface as Remote Desktop.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Solved: getting remote access to my server

You should be able to access it from anywhere using the MS remote desktop client that ships with xp. The catch is that you have to set your router up to forward all remote desktop requests (port 3389) to your server's ip. From the outside, put IP that your ISP assigns to your router in the remote desktop client and it should open up a login screen. The other option would be to set up an IPSEC connect on your router (if it will let you). Then you connect to your router with IPSEC VPN and it's like your on your network... where ever you are.

Hi there,

On Linux, we can easily enable remote access to MySQL server, but on Windows, I got no success so far ( a client tried to connect to MySQL on the server)

Here's the steps to do that (on the server computer):

1. Open a DOS command prompt on the server.
2. Run the following command from the mysql\bin directory:
mysql -u root --password=
3. A mysql> prompt should be displayed.
4. To create a remote user account with root privileges, run the following commands:
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'USERNAME'@'IP' IDENTIFIED BY 'PASSWORD';

'USERNAME' is the username to be created.
'IP' is the public IP address of the remote connection.
'PASSWORD' is the password to be assigned for this username.
(IP can be replaced with % to allow this user to logon from any host or IP)

mysql> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
mysql> exit;

So it is. But I couldn't connect to that MySQL from another computer, both are Windows XP.

If you have any experience, I'd like to receive your help.

Thanks in advance.
 

A:Solved: How to enable remote access to MySQL server on Windows XP

Oh, I got it. It's due to my Windows Firewall. Just turn off it (unsecured) or add MySQL port (e.g. 3306) to the WFirewal's exception.

Hello,
I've just started with a small company who already have AD and a file server, exchange, etc. They currently use webdav or RDS to remotely access files on the server and everyone complains about having to imput their username and password to open a file and how slow it is. I'm trying to find the best solution to give them access to the files without using the cloud. The main office, where I am has AD. 2 Remote offices have no infrastructure, but using laptops provided by us with domain cached credentials. Then there are 2 people in another country who work from home. I thought VPN either client based for everyone or static between the offices with each office having a DC and syncing files a few times a day. I'm just not sure that is the right choice for such a small company. Circa 30 people. 12 in main office, 5 in the other two offices. Also good to mention, the two other offices do not have a reliable fast internet connection. Please, what solutions do I have without using the Cloud?

Operating system: Windows XP Home

Thurs. nite, something happened to my computer, where files in \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM were corrupt or missing. This has happened before, so I threw in my Windows disk and "repaired" it.

I immediately ran the Norton Antivirus (which had updated that morning). HijackThis (nothing unusual), Adaware6 and Spybot.

I have not had a problem doing this before. However this time, I cannot get online. The two error messages I've received are:

Remote Access Server Error. A device attached to the system is not functioning.

OR

Remote Access Server Error. The request is not supported.

I uninstalled Compuserve, then reinstalled, but still get the same error messages.

Also, about 14 hrs. after the computer bombed, Nortons found a "virus":

Virus name: Suspicious Script
Feature: Script Blocking
Action Taken: Blocked
Suspicious action: File System Object: GetSpecialFolder
I called my internet server (Compuserve) who told me that I needed to uninstall, then reinstall DUN.

Please help. I'm at a friend's house, as I can't get online, so my responses might take time.....

Thanks,

I will attempt to be as clear and concise as possible. The situation is that a company is being purchased by another company. Company A is being asked for information by company. Company B wants all of the information required to remotely access company A's servers as soon as the transaction is completed. The problem is company A no longer has IT support or even anyone onsite who is capable of providing this information. Company B has specifically requested a domain password. I have been given this responsibility because I am the closest thing they have to support. I have established remote access between personal computers in the past. But never a company server. How can I direct those onsite through the process of accessing the required information from their servers and then possibly setting up a vpn or remote test to make sure it works? Is a domain password all that company B will require to remotely access servers and network of company A?

Two independent family companies, each with their own LAN, FILE SERVERS and WIN98 Workstations, each operating independently and successfully using different workgroup names. One company is using WIN2000 Server and the other WIN2000 Pro on the file server and all workstations use WIN98.

Make sure that NetBIOS is bound to your network card on the server/PC you are trying to connect to. Big security risk doing this though...anyone can access your files!! If you have a firewall open to the proper ports with letting static IP's in thru them then you should be fine.

Why wouldn't you just install VNC on your new Mac machine, allowing it to be controlled from the PC?

The product itself is cross-platform.

There are downloads for each host and each client environment.

I'm not a Mac person and only use VNC for Windows hosts and clients. But the product's description certainly shows it as being intended to be cross-platform capable.

Hey everybody,

Im hoping someone here can help me out. I am running Outlook 2007 on my laptop and Exchange 2003 on a personal server located in my apt.

When I am in my apt. connected to my wireless, as expected, I have no issues sending/receiving email through exchange.

When I am on the road however, I am obviously unable to connect to my exchange server. I setup a VPN tunnel that works successfully and when I manually dial the VPN connection or manually put outlook into offline mode (so that it dials the VPN connection), I am able to successfully get my emails through exchange.

My question is, is there away to setup outlook such that I dont have to manually dial the VPN or put it in offline mode? I set the exchange server account settings to automatically detect my connection status, but it is detecting my network connection as being ok, even though the Exchange server is not located on that network and needs to be dialed in.

I know it sounds lazy and it is, but Id rather not have to manually do anything, especially if I decide to give some of my less computer literate friends email addresses in my domain. Id rather not use IMAP and SMTP due to security issues having to open the ports on the firewall.

Hey guys,

Im a college student, almost graduating with my degree in C.I.T focusing more into my Cisco classes going for my CCNA. I have been quite interested in the networking field and have wanted to start doing things involving networking to expand my knowledge on my own.
I always wanted to use RDC to connect to my PC when away from home. I can easily connect to all computers on my DGL-4500 D-Link Gaming Router Network. Once i am away from home, i can not connect to it being that i am on a Private IP address (192.168.0.100 - My PC im on now)
I recently discovered D-Link provided a free DDNS @ DLinkDDNS.com. I made my hostname: johncraig87.dlinkddns.com which it also provided my Brower IP address (External IP address) and a box to enter an IP address, i was assuming that i place my Private IP address in here so [email protected] would work in RDC and connect. Nothing works.
I do however have a hostname which i made the IP my External IP, so when i enter my hostname linked to my external IP it works.

My main question is really, Do i have to use my External IP address to connect Remotely to my computer? or can i make another one with a hostname? How does it work?

If someone has the answer, either leave it on here, email me [addr. removed by mod for privacy]. Thank you very much

I can't think of any off hand that would restrict just one resource - that's not to say there aren't though.  Here's what you can do to check the Services:
Note that you must be logged in as a Domain Admin or have Local Admin privileges on the machines.
Start up two instances of services.msc.
On one of them connect to one of the Windows 7 machines that is working properly.  The other leave connected locally.  
Now go down the list and make sure the services on your machine match the services on the working machine.  If they don't, change them so that they do.  Pay particular attention to the Server and Workstation services.  Also the Remote Procedure
Call and RPC Endpoint Mapper services.

I would like to know if there is some remote PC thing where if I keep my PC home and logged in to a server, or something similar, then using the same logon details on my laptop, access the PC at any time without someone having to click accept on the PC.
I would like full access to my PC so that I may do my work from home on my PC using my laptop.

I am going home tomorrow so if someone could reply fast that would be much appreciated.
Thanks.

Since you say "PC" I assume it is running Windows. If it is a Pro version of Windows you can use the included Remote Desktop Connection. For any Windows, or many other OSes, you can use TeamViewer, (my choice) LogMein, or similar remote access programs.

My curiosity is getting the better of me. Is it possible to have a phone based and serviced in one town that has an advertized range of 1000 miles, then move to another town, taking the phone with, a few hundred miles away and remotely access a computer and internet service "back home" to create a myspace with that phone? I'm probably the only person on the planet that doesn't own a cell, sorry. I do have a valid reason for asking this, not because I want to but because I suspect someone did.

Thanks,

I have a user that will be going out of town and I am assuming they will have internet access from their hotel. They will be traveling with a Mac computer and will need to access a windows PC. I don't think they have a firewall. PC Anywhere used to have something, any other ideas?

I work from a remote location, and use a VPN to access files on the company server. I have no problem logging into the VPN, but when using Windows 7 64-bit, I am denied access to the specific folder containing the files I need, even though I can see and open other folders on the same server.

However, if I connect from an old laptop running Windows 2000, I get a login pop-up when I click on the desired folder and after entering my username (including the remote domain name) and password I can access the files. In the newer OS, I just get a stock "access denied" message, with no option to log in. Specifically, in W7 the message is "You do not have permission to access this folder", which is nonsense.

Our IT department is baffled. Does anyone know how to set up W7 so it will allow me to log into the protected folder in the same way I can do it in W2K? Once logged in to the VPN itself, I use the 'run' command with the remote IP address to bring up the folders in a normal Explorer window.
 

A:Solved: No login pop-up for remote access in W7 64-bit

If, instead of using the run command, you open Windows Explorer and click on Network in the Navigation Pane (or Start - Network if you have Network in the Start menu) does the server show up? If so, does double clicking on it show the shared folders? And, if so, does double clicking the folder there give you the chance to enter credentials?

I have found that although "Network" and a "normal Windows Explorer window" look alike, they don't always give the same results.

I understand a VPN allows a remote connection to one's private network.
Does it allow a remote connection to connect to the internet through that private network? Making access to the internet just as if you were at home on your network behind your gateway?

I have a Z100G router that has a VPN with a VPN throughput of 5 Mbps. I am going to be doing some travel in Europe. Would this router / VPN be adequate enough to allow me to connect to the inernet behind my gateway from various places with internet access? Would it be worth setting up this VPN for my travels?

Any and all help is much appreciated...

Hi
Here's what I have done leading up to the problem.
I set my iPhone up using the Jumi app so that I can connect to my laptop remotely and all works fine both on my wireless network and when I'm away from it. I then decided that it would be handy if I could do the same for my PC but I also wanted to be able to leave it switched off and power it up remotely. I had to purchase a network card as my motherboard didn't support WOL but having installed it and using the WakeUp app on my iPhone i've got my PC to power up remotely and use Jumi to access it. The problem I've got is that it all only seems to work while on my wireless network, as soon as I switch off wireless on my iPhone I can't power up my PC remotely. My wireless router is hooked up to a Gigabit switch which then links to my PC via Ethernet cable. Thanks in advance.

hey everyone,

I need to access the Remote Console provided with the XP install disk, and I have a few questions about it. I am running Windows XP Home with SP2 and have recently been having problems with a vundo trojan. As far as I can understand, to get rid of the remaining files I need to install the RC from the Windows XP install disk. However, I purchased my notebook from Dell and it came with a CD entitled "Reinstall CD - Microsoft Windows XP Home Editiont - Including Service Pack 1a".

I'm wondering if I can use that CD to install the RC. And I've read that the RC doesnt work with SP2, so should i Add/Remove SP2 before installing this?

Thanks in advance for any help,

Ryan

This could be a nice simple answer for someone with some experience in this.. read on...

I would like remote desktop access to one computer on my network when I am not at home. When I am at home I use UltraVNC to log into 'Eddie' (my store computer) from my laptop and it works perfectly.

I would like to be able to do the same from work and friends houses.

I have tried using pcAnywhere and UltraVNC to log into my external IPort and forwarded that port to the internal IP of 'Eddie'. This doesn't work... what I don't know is whether or not it should!

Hi all,

I have a Linksys router/modem and I'm using Symantec PC Anywhere to access my PCs. I have 4 PCs in my office but the problem is when I try to access them I can only ever access one.

PCAnywhere uses port 5631 and 5632 as a default. Any PC I assign using these ports work just fine but any other port fails, which causes the problem as one can't assign the same ports to different PCs at the same time.

Any ideas folks.
