moderated Re: Finding the ip addresss of a computer?

This is a very bad idea, because of bugs in Windows, an attacker could
take over your computer this way. In order to do this properly, you
need a vpn server at your home. Also, your ip address can change at
any time, unless you have a static ip address which most people do not

Do you know how to do it?
Can you provide exact steps?

For this to work, you need public IP address, open ports and so on. It is not that easy.

Subject: Re: Finding the ip addresss of a computer?

I have a computer, in outside my home, that I'd like to access, when I'm not physically near it.
I have the remote desktop app on my iphone and ipad.
The computer is running win10 pro, and jaws2020.
You have to have a password on the computer you want to connect to.
You also need internet access.

Once that's done, open the "remote desktop connection" app, and there are several tabs.

Under "advanced, I think it was where it asked for the server name.
After that, it constantly asked for my password, and would not take it.

Can anyone help?
I'm so close to finally getting this.

What is it, precisely, that you're trying to accomplish here? And using what program or instructions?

Any of a million things can ask for the things you're asking about and it would make it much easier to help if one has the whole picture.
