Remote Desktop via a Domain Name
If I was to register a domain name, (for example, www.domain.com) and created a subdomain (e.g. home.domain.com) could I get the subdomain to point to port 3389 on my computer and therefore let me Remote Desktop into my machine?
Currently I need to input my IP Address into Remote Desktop and it connects, however, does Remote Desktop allow connections using a domain name? (i.e. In this case - home.domain.com)
My main reason for this is that I am on a Dynamic IP. Are there any good UK Domain Name Providers that will allow me to do this and keep their DNS records updated with my dynamic address?
Re: Remote Desktop via a Domain Name
You want a ddns service like this http://www.dyndns.com/services/dns/dyndns/
There are quite a few free ones if you search Google for ddns.
Not sure on the subdomain for a specific port but you can use domains instead of IPs for the Remote Desktop.
