Hi.

I am having a few issues with the HG556A Vodafone Router/Modem ADSL 2+
Firstly i cant get my friend to connect to my game server i am hosting with the same exact settings as we had it 2 weeks ago, Local IP's have not altered, DMZ, NAT etc still the same, External ip is Dynamic and i gave him the new one and he can successfully ping it. One problem is that i cant ping his IP, I get no response. He is connected to the internet.

Secondly how can i connect to my server at home with RDP from an external location? Im not sure how it works but someone said its along the lines of xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx/192.168.1.40?? or xxx/40

Cheers

If its a server at home you want to connect to you will need to create a DNS zone to use and also setup the ports.

What you can do is sign up to Logmein and use it as a remote support client anywhere you want.
