But that might keep changing because sometimes my router restarts due to voltage fluctuations and the IP changes on every router restart…

you can use services like dyndns.org etc.. or whichever your router supports...


#6

Yes, you can use some software to access other computer without any server, and you can set the privacy your own.

There is one called TeamViewer.

Never used it myself (I am a little bit conscious about my privacy) but friends say its great !

Yes, TeamViewer is great software, I have used it several times.

Otherwise u can create VPN connection to connect to your computer.

I would give this software 9/10, extremely recommended. It has even got a VPN option I used it with a lot of success.

it as simple as 123. Just set a manual password on your home pc.


#13

I've used logmein.com in the past. Works really well, and very simple to use.


#14

Teamviewer, i've personally used it nad works well.


#15

Thanks ! Will try it out


#16

Worked fine at home but doesnt seem to be working from office !


#17

hmm..... there might be some internet security issue, like firewall or something,you might need to add exception.


#18

I have to use a proxy and a username and password to access internet here at the office. I tried putting the proxy and my username and password in TeamViewer settings but it still does not connect.

Where do i need to add the exception?

Does your office has some kind of a firewall installed ? Ask you sys admin to setup team viewer in your office.

Well as people suggested TeamViewer is the best option

I also use teamviewer and dyndns enabled on router

Now what the issue at your end seems to be is that you haven't forwarded the port teamviewer is running on.

What you need to do is that you need to forward the port 80, on your router.
