    Question Cannot access Remote Desktop + Assign a PC an IP

    In our network I can access a computer that I have remote desktop setup on... But a company in Texas cannot access it via IP address.

    I assume I need to call my ISP and get another static IP address, then assign that static IP address to a local static IP address that only the remote desktop computer has priveledges to.

    How would I go about doing this? I already have the additional IP address now...

    In fact we have 3 static IP's from our DSL company...

    Our setup goes from DSL modem > Apple Time Capsule > Linksys Switch > Remote Desktop PC

    Does anyone know how to get this to work so when I give the company in Texas my IP address, they can get into the remote desktop PC?

    Thanks all! Hope someone can help me out.

    Few questions about your network:

    You have DSL modem -> ATC -> Wireless network
    -- Is anything on this wireless part of the network? Is the network here bridged at all or just a standard NAT?

    You also have DLS modem -> ATC -> LS Switch -> Cabled network
    -- Is the ATC setup to be again a NAT here or just bridging the modem such that your cabled computers are getting the static IPs?

    I'm not that familiar with the ATC but if I know anything about Apple hardware it's flexible enough to do a goodly number of things. You should be able to somehow bridge the PC in question out to your DSL modem to get a real IP.

    You need to forward port 3389 (through your router) to the static IP of the computer you are trying to reach. You don't need additional WAN static IP's.
