What is the best way to connect to my PC remotely?

I really would like to just use Remote Desktop Connection in Windows. Is there a way to configure this so I can access my PC from any other PC in the world?

If not, I’ve heard of PC Anywhere and Gotomypc. Are these better alternatives? Even if Remote Desktop Connection will work from any PC, is there an alternative that you think I might prefer?

If Remote Desktop Connection is possible, can someone provide me with a detailed explanation of how to do it because I have only ever been able to connect to a computer on the same network. Thanks.

    From the fact that you have stated you can connect to a computer on your network I am presuming that RDC is working for you.

    The best thing to do if you currently cannot access your RDC from outside of your network is to disable any firewalls on both computers; and forward the correct ports on your router to the PC that you wish to RDC into (lookup: NAT).

    I hope this helps 🙂 .

    GoToMyPC and PCAnywhere get you around the problem of a dynamic IP address, otherwise you have no way to guarantee you will find your machine.

    you need to know the public ip of your pc and then you can use remote desktop from anywhere..

    go to the site

    to get your ip, next, if you are using a router, you have to configure it to forward traffic for remote desktop

    lastly, if your ip is dynamic (most cable is) then it may change from time to time. Just be sure to check the ip once in a while to know if its changed.

    some routers can be set up to report their ip using free services such as available from

    go to that site and read up on what you need to do.

    if this is all too complicated for you any pc tech worth his salt can do this for you remotely

    I wish to express my appreciation to you just for bailing me out of this circumstance. As a result of checking through the search engines and getting thoughts which are not beneficial, I believed my entire life was well over. Being alive minus the approaches to the difficulties you’ve resolved all through the report is a critical case, as well as the ones which may have in a negative way affected my entire career if I had not discovered your web page. That training and kindness in controlling all things was important. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t come across such a step like this. I can at this moment relish my future. Thank you so much for your professional and amazing guide. I won’t be reluctant to endorse the sites to any person who wants and needs guide about this subject.
