In this article, I am going to discuss how to access your computer via Remote Desktop over the internet.

Steps:

  1. Allow your computer to use Remote Desktop.
    Right click My Computer -> Properties -> Remote -> Check Allow users to connect remotely to this computer under Remote Desktop.
  2. Configure the wireless router.
    Connect to router's web interface and login.
    Click Virtual Servers under Firewall.
    Add entry for Remote Desktop.

  3. Subscribe to dyndns.org so that you can access your router using domain name
