I recently bought Remote Desktop Client by Syllogithm for $.99. Plenty of great reviews on it, however I'm too much of an ***** to get connected I guess.
The very first step is:
"Please enter hostname of the RDP server:"
Now, I am on a wireless network at my house. So I know my IP address on my computer(the one I'm trying to connect to) is 192.xxx.x.x on the network. My public IP that's displayed via whatsmyip is 173.xx.xx.xxx. (I believe that is the IP displayed to the public for all the computers on the network?) I am on Vista and have enabled "Allow remoted desktop assistance".
I cannot get past the first step. It keeps saying: "Unable to connect". Or, it will say "getaddrinfo: Name or service not known".
I have tried entering just the 192 IP alone. I have tried just the 173 alone. I have tried both addresses with a ":3389" as I think that is the default remote port? Anyone know what the hell I'm doing wrong?
