I need to connect to my work PC from my home, i try to use VNC & remote desktop but I can't configure it right, Any advice?


Make sure that you have a rule in your software firewall to allow VNC through.
You also need to make sure that your routers firewall has the correct ports forwarded.

Can I suggest you try TeamViewer
Its Free for personal use, you need a license for business
Its probably the most powerfull remote software around

Its a lot easier to use and has much more features than VNC

How to install Mozilla firefox in iPhone 3G

There's no official Mozilla Firefox (yet) compatible with any kind of Iphone but I can tell you two solutions that I've used.
1. If you really need it (Firefox), you could set a VNC (Virtual Network Computing) server (e.g. RealVNC ) on your Home PC and then use it remotely from your Iphone with a client VNC software (e.g. RealVNC for IPhone).
2. If you need firefox because you want to navigate through Flash websites, you could also try the Skyfire Navigator that basically converts the flash websites to Iphone compatible ones!.
Hope this helps.

How do I set the remote access code.... I have a 6.0

RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol ) that is described above is the most ideal and best solution, but it is only available in XP Pro...not sure what vista ver, probably not home edition. If it isn't available on your PC your only realistic alternative other than using something like GOTOMYPC is VNC.

You'll have to install VNC (sourced below) and open up port 5900 to the internet on your router to your computer's IP. In these circumstances it not a bad idea to make your computer IP Static, so it doesn't change on you. Also look in your router for something called DDNS. you can sign up with websites like DYNDNS.ORG and you can reference your house by NAME instead of IP In the future. and it updates with you IP changes.

To access from work you will have to use a VNC client or the JAVA web client on port 5800. basicly you would install VNC and both locations or find a "vnc viewer" tight vnc has a standalone viewer if needed. just google it

If all this is too confusing, seriously just use costs a little bit, but its super easy Source(s):

Windows xp remote desctop (tweaked) , how to overcome problem with limit of 3 persons logged on windows xp in the same time?


As if you are aware, Windows XP is *NOT* a server operating system, so, any time, only *one* user will be allowed to log in *interactively*.
You need to use VNC software if you want to use your system by multiple users at the same time.

But, session will remain interactive for only one user at a time.
By *interactive* i mean, only one user at a time can be logged in, if multiple users are logging in using VNC or any other Utility software, they will be sharing the same session/desktop.

Thanks and regards.

Remote desktop

Here is a short list of applications that can be used.
1) VNC (Virtual Network Computing) is a remote display system which allows the user to view the desktop of a remote machine anywhere on the internet. It can also be directed through SSH for security.
Basically you install VNC server on the server and install client on your local PC. Setup is extremely easy and server is very stable. On client side, you can set the resolution and connect to IP of VNC server. It can be a bit slow compared to Windows remote desktop and also has the tendency to take more time refreshing over low-bandwidth links. All in all VNC is an amazing piece of free software that gets the job done.
There is RealVNC , TightVNC and UltraVNC. Each has it’s advantages and disadvantages. Most popular one is RealVNC but if you’re upto it, experiment with all three and choose the one that works for you best. By default, communication between client and server is in clear text on port 5900. However, you can easily route all traffic via SSH tunnel. Here is a quick way of setting it up if you have access to command line shell:
ssh -ND 5900 <user>
When you get prompted, enter your password. Pop open VNC client and connect to ‘localhost’. This’ll route your connection to VNC server on remote machine.
You can download VNC from:
2) Then there is FreeNX. FreeNX is a system that allows you to access your desktop from another machine over the internet. You can use this to login graphically to your desktop from a remote location. One example of its use would be to have a FreeNX server set up on your home computer, and graphically logging in to the home computer from your work computer, using a FreeNX client. It provides near local speed application responsiveness over high latency, low bandwidth links.
FreeNX can be configured to run via SSH without any tunneling. It binds to your existing SSH install. Instead of guiding you through the installation of FreeNX in this article, you can visit the following URLs that’ll guide you through the installation on Ubuntu:
  3. (FreeNX homepage)
3) The third free application is 2X Terminal Server for Linux. 2X TerminalServer for Linux is an Open Source project, licensed under the GPL and is free of charge. As far as performance goes, NoMachine’s technology is on par with Windows’ own Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) suite, better than VNC. Both X2 and FreeNX is based on NoMachine technology.
Here are some quick links if you’re interested in using this software:
  1. Download at
  2. Forum is at
4) The last but not least at all is XDMCP. The X Display Manager Control Protocol uses UDP port 177. Compared to the list above, it’s not as easy to setup for remote desktop but it’s the original way of doing this on Linux. You can get setup instructions and other tips in the following URL:
In conclusion, there are many commercial products that are available as well. But this article is only based on open source products that can be freely used with no strings attached.

Router sharing

It sounds like your computers are virtually connected somehow by Remote Desktop or VNC. VNC stands for Virtual Network Computing. It is remote control software which allows you to view and fully interact with one computer desktop (the "VNC server") using a simple program (the "VNC viewer") on another computer desktop anywhere on the Internet.

Your best bet would be to hold the reset button down at the back of your router for around 15 to 20 seconds. The router will then be back to the factory presets it was shipped with and should hopefully negate the problem.

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!

Remote access

Yes it is. You can use the vnc server and client utilities for this. Install VNC server on all the linux pcs. Then install the windows version of vnc on the pc you want to connect FROM.

Give the ip address of the linux pc you wish to connect to, and lo, you get the same desktop that is on the linux pc. Of course you can configure password protection.

Another easy but techie way to connect is with telnet or ssh command after enabling these services on the linux pc.
