PostPosted: Tue 03 May 2011, 10:16    Post_subject:  RDesktop Puppy > Windows 7 Home over Ethernet via router  

I have been trying to get PuppyLinux (Lupu 525) to connect to control my Windows 7 Home box. The only thing I have been able to use so far is TeamViewer who charge a huge amount for any kind of commercial use.

My IP address is the same for both computers and I believe changes when I turn on the internet in the morning.

So if anyone can give me a walkthrough of the right commands for rdesktop, I'd be grateful.

My guess is it should be some variation of
# rdesktop 192.168.1.72 (the local addres of the computer)
but I get Connection Timed Out

When I use the current IP address I get Connection Refused.

Should I be using some form of computer address e.g. PR-HP, PR-HP.MSHOME, or PR-HP.home ?

Kind regards

Peter

Hi PeterR

I'm a newbee on puppy., but I'm trying to achieve something similar, and I'm running PuppyLinux Lupu525 from cd (with a storagefile on a usb pendrive)...

Your problem may be some kind of settings in your win7, preventing rdesktop to access it.
Maybe trying to set System Properties > Remote > RemoteDesktop > "Allow conections from computers running any version of Remote Desktop" may solve your connection...

But I'm no pro on this...

What I would want to ask you is how you installed rdesktop on your puppy?
Because I can't manage to find it.

I've also found Remmina (that seems to be a better option than rdesktop), but cannot manage to install it either.


thank you for any help

Remobo is probably a good alternative to Teamviewer.

I don't understand how that is possible.
You are probably using a website to tell you your IP address, but it is telling you the external IP address of your router, not the IP addresses of your computers on your local network.
Try running `ifconfig` on your Puppy machine to see its IP address. (I think the equivalent on Windows might be ipconfig or something).

There are 2 different IP addresses - your intranet/internal home network behind a router/ISPmodem and your internet/external 'postbox' address needed to receive data packets from wherever

see

http://whatsmyip.net/

for your external IP address

Your router/modem will normally assign the internal one, via DHCP, usually in the region of 192.168.X.X

There is also the physical hardware address or MAC address
A MAC address represents the physical identifier of a network adapter, while the IP address represents a logical device address on Internet Protocol networks.

A built-in feature of IP, Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) translates IP addresses to MAC addresses. ARP was not designed to translate addresses in the other direction, however.

For an explanation see

http://www.juniper.net/techpubs/software/erx/erx50x/swconfig-routing-vol1/html/ip-config8.html

There's also Network address Translation

Hope that's not too deep...?
