Hi,
So what do I do if I want to access it outside the network?
Thanks,

Of course that is only the internal IP address, not useful if it is needed from somewhere outside the LAN.

Just type ipconfig in the command line and it will give you all the relevant info for your network.

Hi
Thanks, now it wants a domain/username, so how do I find that? 

Thanks, Jessica

I presume you're looking for the IP address on your local area network.  I find it much easier to do this on the machine where I want it by running the following command sequence under command prompt:

ipconfig | findstr IPv4

The IPv4 must be entered with the first two characters upper case, and the v in lower case, for this to work correctly.

I need more information to help uou. I need your ISP name, router model ETC. Then we can work. However this is getting way beyond the JAWS topics. Can I write you privately?

Hi,

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. 

 

Thanks,

Jessica

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
have.

That was like Jaws remote and NVDA remote, only it was going through Team Viewer.

This is not a trivial task and has a lot of security implications.s

And once you get this to work, unless you have jars with the remote access license on your tablet, all you will have as an image of your computer with no sound.

Can we get more information on why remote access to your computer is needed. With this information we may be able to provide alternative solutions.

She is attempting to connect to one of her computers, maybe work/maybe not, however, this is not a computer within her LAN. She is needing step by step instructions to connect the two. Don’t as why, if you know, give her the steps. This has gone on too long. If you do not know how to connect, using a 3rd-party app as team viewer, I believe it is called, or another. Worry not about what she is doing or attempting to do. Worry not why she is attempting to do this. If you can, giver step one, step two and on and on in clear detail. Otherwise, lets end this thread please.

If you don't know "what she is attempting to do" or "why she is attempting to do it" then giving step-by-step instructions is impossible.  Hence my much earlier request.  There are also many instances where someone has really not given adequate thought to what they're trying to do out of ignorance of other options.

Using a third party tool would be much easier, and more secure, than attempting to use remote desktop as is being proposed.  I thought even JAWS Tandem had a setting that allows remote connection unattended, but am absolutely not certain about that.  There are a number of utilities that do allow remote connections unattended at one end.

Hi,
In case anyone is curious, the remote desktop app is 99% accessible. 

There are 2 buttons, that aren't technically labealed, ,  but voiceover provides hints for what they are.

Generic instruction is below. Since I did not get the information I have requested I cannot give more detailed info:

  1. First of all, you need to get the local IP address of your machine. Thic can be achieved in some ways, but this has already been covered by others.
  2. With that information in hand, login to your router from your computer. The default gateway should be: 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1. However if your network settings are different, you might need to get the gateway information. To get it, enter the cmd and type: ipconfig | findstr Gateway. This command will first invoke the ipconfig, and then redirect its output to findstr, which in turn will give back your gateway.
  3. Copy it with your favorite way and enter the router with that information
  4. Login to the router: the default data is admin for username and admin for the password, but ISPs tend to change these more and more often, so you might refer to your ISP for details.
  5. Find an option regarding forwarding ports, or DMS. Keep in mind, that by enabling DMZ you expose yourself to even more risk than you do normally.
  6. If you go for the port forwarding, you need to forward port 3389, both TCP and UDP, since this is the port RDP operates on.
  7. If prompted, enter your local machine’s IP address.
  8. If you go for the DMZ route, just enable the thing and enter your local machine address. Again: not recommended.

HTH.

If you don't know "what she is attempting to do" or "why she is attempting to do it" then giving step-by-step instructions is impossible.  Hence my much earlier request.  There are also many instances where someone has really not given adequate thought to what they're trying to do out of ignorance of other options.

Using a third party tool would be much easier, and more secure, than attempting to use remote desktop as is being proposed.  I thought even JAWS Tandem had a setting that allows remote connection unattended, but am absolutely not certain about that.  There are a number of utilities that do allow remote connections unattended at one end.

You need a lot more than just the IP address.


1. In order to access anything on a computer, you need a file server of some kind--FTP, http, etc.


2. In order to make a file server work, you need two addresses--that of the computer itself, and that of the router to which said computer is connected.


2.1. To get the address of the computer on which the server is running, do the following:

2.1.1. Open the Windows Start menu by tapping the Windows Key.

2.1.2. In the search field, type cmd. Hear Windows say "Command prompt ..." etc. Press ENTER.

2.1.3. At the prompt, type "ipconfig" and press ENTER.

2.1.4. Use the JAWS Cursor and move through the screen contents until you find something that sounds similar to this:


   IPv4 Address. . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.1.140


Whatever you find that closely resembles the above, that's your computer's address. Make a note of it.


2.1.5 type EXIT and press ENTER to close the Command Prompt window.

2.2. To find the address of the great unwashed Internet on which your router sits, go to http://www.whatismyip.com and look for something on the screen that sounds like this:


My Public IPv4 is: blah.blah.blah.blah


The numbers you hear, sepearted by periods, are your external wide-area network (WAN) address. Make a note of it.


Now for the hard part.


3. Using your router's address, which you can find by searching the screen you got in step 1 and looking for the string "Gateway," log into your router' administrative/maintenance account  and set up a forwarded port to the computer who's address you discovered in Step 2.1 above. The port number you will forward depends upon the kind of server you've set up. Secure FTP is port 22; https is port 443. How to accomplish logging into your router and setting up a forwarded port is beyond the scope of this mesage, mostly since all router manufacturers have different ways of doing it.


You're all set now. You can set up your internal file server to give you access to anything on your home system.


Note that some network-attached storage devices offer this ability in a nice, pre-packaged application which is a lot easier to set up than what I just described, except for the port forwarding part. That one's  a necessary evil unfortunately.

Just type ipconfig in the command line and it will give you all the relevant info for your network.

I presume you're looking for the IP address on your local area network.  I find it much easier to do this on the machine where I want it by running the following command sequence under command prompt:

ipconfig | findstr IPv4

The IPv4 must be entered with the first two characters upper case, and the v in lower case, for this to work correctly.

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

Hi,

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. 

 

Thanks,

Jessica

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.

OK then, part of what I wrote is still valid--the port-forwarding part anyway.
