configure Ubuntu 12.04 as a host to access from W7 (remote desktop) from outside LAN
Hi all, I'm new to Ubuntu and have tried several things to connect to ubuntu from W7 outside the lan. I have done the following:
1. I have installed the xrdp #
sudo apt-get install xrdp
2. I have registered to obtain a dynamic ip-address on no-ip so i have myname.no-ip.org
3. I have used the network manager to set a manual ip address and dns server name
4. I have opened port 80 in my router for the static ip that I have set
When I try to connect through the ip directly (inside my home lan) it works, however if I try myname.no-ip.org it doesn't.
Also, testing port 80 http://www.canyouseeme.org/ doesn't work either.
Many thanks for helping!
