    Question Setting up ports for 3 PC's running the same DNS


    Hey all i am in need of some help here. I have 3 PC's and i am wondering if i would be able to hook all 3 up to the same DNS and share my domain name that i have registered with no-ip.com running the Remote Desktop Connection for each?

    As an example of what i am talking about:

    Say my website was named http://www.bobbarker.com.

    And i wanted each of my 3 PC's to be able to be connected using http://pc1.bobbarker.com, http://pc2.bobbarker.com and http://pc3.bobbarker.com.

    How would i need to set that up on each PC in order to be able to connect through Remote Desktop Connection to any of those 3 pc's no matter where i am at? I'm sure it has to do with the port number but i do not know really how to set each one up for a differnent port number using windows server 2008 r2. I already know how to open a port on the router to use but am unsure of how to set the port up to redirect using the domain name as stated above.

    Any help/examples would be awesome!

    I do not believe that is possible with Remote Desktop, as it uses Terminal Services listening on a single port 3389. I assume that the 3 PC's are behind a NAT router on a private network. In that scenario, I recommend any of the freely available flavors of VNC. I use UltraVNV, and if you are using Windows Vista or Win7, you will have to choose one that supports logoff. Set each one up to listen on a different port, and then set up your NAT router to forward that port to the appropriate machine. You will have to use fixed IP addressing and I recommend not using the default port at all, as hackers will find the default port and attempt to break in.

    YOu can adjust the port RDP listens on by editing the registry value, just Google it and then forward the necessary ports.
