Question any Remote Desktop for Mobiles users

Please Login to Remove!

http://www.desktopmobiles.com/

This looks to be what I need. need RDP. But reading the site, I can't figure out if this will work with my BES 4.x server.

I want to install the Rdesktop4Mob "server" on a win2k3 server inside my private network. Since BES will let me access anything inside my network I want it to ie; 192.168.x.x 10.x.x.x, I don't need to open this box with Rd4mob up to the net. I can ride my BES connection down inside my network.

Reading their website. It looks like you need to open the box up on specific ports to the net. There is not one scenario where it mentions accessing servers via a BES setup. Couple times it mentions you need Dual "NIC" to make the product work.


Thanks

I am using it both at home and at work on both networks. The installation was straight out of the box with minimal configuration. I do not have a BES but have strong firewalls in place at both ends, and other than opening ports i did nothing else. At work I reach my computer and from there control several servers and 30 or some odd computers and laptops. At home I have a network throught the house with four computers and two servers, I use cable at home (Comcast) and again opened ports and that was pretty much it. In both scenarios I reach a machine and then remote desktop from there to all the others.

I have a new Blackberry 7130e (Verizon CDMA). I am able to accesss the test server but everytime I attempt to access my wireless laptop I get a "connection error". I have the Windows Firewall turned off, but I nevertheless have opened port 6100. I have tried using both the internal IP address (192.168.x.x from ipconfig) and the external IP address (67.164.xxx.xx from getip). Which IP address should I be using? Any thoughts? (sorry about the double post).
Thanks.

You are behind a firewall, you will need to Port-forward tcp port 6100 via 67.164.x.x IP to your 192.168.x.x IP

Go here for portforwarding if you have a home network with any of linksys, belkin, dlink zytel, etc.

Am not trying to be rude but that is the answer to your question you have to go to your firewall or router software and in there select the port you want to have opened. Specific steps depend on which firewall and or router you have.. It should have come with instruction manuals that give you that information, if you have cable at home and are trying to do it through their router call the cable carrier and their tech support can walk you through it.. I only know how to work on my own and I am sure that the odds that we both have the same one where I could walk you step by step are infinitesimal to say the least.

Well, I just got this prog work and it freakin rocks...

install RDM server on LAN computer and RDM client on BB...

Open port 6100 and point it to the RDM server IP...(I would suggest making this a static IP if it isn't already)

This is what I did and then figured out I needed to configure APN on the BB...I had written to support for RDM and they got to me after I figured it out. Figures. Anyway, here's what they said.

Hello David,

RDM client requires that you use an Internet access point name (APN) instead of a wireless access point (WAP). Most carriers have an Internet APN available and may charge an additional fee to use it. Contact your carrier and check if you are able to use their APN.

If you are already using the APN, check with your carrier that your Internet APN settings are correct.

On a BlackBerry device, you can enter or modify Internet APN settings by selecting TCP on the Options menu.

The Remote Desktop for Mobiles Client on BlackBerry use a direct connection to the Server through Internet without use the Blackberry Enterprise Server (BES). For a correct configuration of your BlackBerry for a direct connection to a server please read a topic:

"How to Configure Full Internet Access On BlackBerry"

BlackBerry Internet - MSN/chat/web/telnet/TCPIP - No BES!

After configuring full Internet access on your Blackberry, select the type of connection "Direct access through TCP/IP". For that, use the main menu item "Setup" - "Connections".
