An alternative to MyHouse.com
« on: January 30, 2008, 08:23:18 AM »

I've found LogMeIn.com to be better (and less frustrating) than MyHouse.  It's a free and secure remote control service to your PC - and you can do so much more, like restart AHP, edit macros, etc., just like you're sitting there.

I've been using it for a month with no outages yet.

 :) The Remote Desktop (RDP) built into Windows XP and Vista also works well. The MyHouse connection is isn't always available - or reliable.

Sign up for a free DYN DNS account if your ISP changes your dynamic IP address frequently or to avoid the hassle of having to get the dynamic address which may change.

Examples:

Myhouse.selfip.org
Myhouse.selfip.org:3390 (if you wish to change the default port from 3389 to another port)

Changing Ports: (don't forget to add an exception to the XP firewall for the new port)

Modify the Router for port fowarding:
