Method 4 – Setup Remote Desktop From Anywhere & Change Secure Rdp Port Access (Your Pc Over The Internet)

Hello everyone how are you doing this is heltons computer repair here with another video for you on this video. Im going to be showing you how to enable the remote desktop on your computer pretty much for it to. Work they can remote into it now its not going to be just regular remoting into your network and lets. Say were like and youre inside of the building and you want to remote into it no im actually going.

To be showing you how you can remote this outside the network anywhere you are depending on that i might. Actually go into a point where you could also can maybe later down the road show you how to set. Up on a specific website pretty much a redirect for it they can get to your remote desktop too there. Are other things also can be done by changing the ports from the 3389 default port from remote desktop to. Something more secure because most people would try on brute force going to the default generic 3389 for it and.

Also stuff that you would recommend to have a good password for your computer also some stuff that you would. Recommend to not have any users that have no password or something very simple that can be crackable because its. Not really hard for people to brute force into your computer enabling the remote desktop there are other stuff also. Depending if you have an enterprise protection you might need to enable those ports too but this is going to. Go straight through and if you have any problems just let me know but lets go ahead and jump right.

Into this video now before we get into this if i havent told you yet if you have a windows. Home windows 10 home pretty much you may not have this ability for it you probably need to have pro. Enterprise or education for this to work so your option is to pretty much upgrade it or to use a. Different route like using like real vnc to use that ability to remote into your computer but for this is. Go ahead and continue so first thing you just pretty much go ahead and go to explore when you go.

To explore you see this pc you can right click on it and you select properties of it and on. The left side you have the video where it says remote settings go ahead and select it and right here. Im actually going to uncheck where it says remote assistance i dont need that and right here you can select. Allow remote connections to this computer im going to press apply if you have multiple users you can select which. Users have permission or whatever if theyre joined in the group if you know that is you understand by default.

I already have this user so im going to go ahead and just leave this as is and press ok. Another option in case its not being shown there you can pretty much go also to settings by going to. Start and settings and select system and then youll see remote desktop and here it is enabled also so pretty. Much its the same one or the other for it and its pretty much set already so another thing that. You need to do before we continue is im actually going to remote in to try and see if it.

Works you need to have an add to not really an address a password for your computer for this to. Work now if you have a user that has no password or something very simple to be cracked i would. Really recommend to change it to something more secure so all were going to do is go to this pretty. Much start go to settings you pretty much can just type in control delete and you can select change user. Password if you have the ability if not go to settings go to accounts and then once you get to.

Here youre going to see sign in options and then you have other options to come to here the one. That were going to need is pretty much the password and i already have a password thats already been set. Before im actually going to update it to something more different for it so im gonna go ahead and type. In my new one and im gonna go ahead and type it in again if you had something small you. Need to change it and my hint is none just to be mean because i dont want no one to.

Know what it is and the password has been changed and is now set so technically right now if i. Test my other computer i should be able to remote to this computer and the screen should lock up if. It is then pretty much it is in process so here we are im gonna go ahead and get ready. To remote to this one right now i dont know what my ip address is because remember this is only. Local so im gonna go ahead and type in cmd ipconfig and right now it is 192.168.1.139 again this is.

A private network so doesnt even matter right now its only my local so it wont matter what you have. So what im going to do now is pretty much go ahead and see if i can remote into it. From my other computer cancel that so here it is the 192.168.1.139 yours may be different depending what it is. But here it is im gonna go ahead and try and press connect depending on the user that you had. So my user is it says admin it is not admin it is actually the user is user lets see.

What it is its actually user so let me go to here im gonna go ahead to cmd and im. Gonna go ahead and type in net user and you see my user is actually user if you have stuff. That is has multiple names you might need to do something like this lets say example its like john smith. As the user this is what it would look like then you probably need to do this when you type. It in for it to work i would recommend to probably just change your user to something just simple as.

Just like john also dont use something like admin or user put something more secure for this is just an. Example for the demonstration for right now so here i am im gonna go ahead and remote to it im. Gonna go ahead and type in user and im gonna go ahead and type in the password that i just. Did and were gonna see if i can remote into it its gonna ask if you want to connect with. It im gonna go ahead and press yes and here it is right now i remote it to the computer.

Its there i am literally remote it into us now technically this is through the ip address im gonna go. Ahead and disconnect and here it is on that computer im gonna go ahead and sign back in and you. Dont have to do the ipad if you dont want to if you have the name of the computer so. If i go to this pc that i have and you see i have change settings im actually just going. To highlight this this is actually a computers full name and you can do that route too you can change.

This also by going to change and put something more simple that way youll remember what it is and ill. Give you that option for you so if i go the same way to remote desktop and im gonna go. Ahead and type in that instead ill press connect it should be able to do the same thing too and. Here it is because he already knows what the name is ill press yes and here i am remoting into. This computer and there it is with the name working perfectly fine and thats pretty much it right now if.

You had an antivirus protection you might need to enable this to be bypassed to allow you to it it. Would be defaulted three three eight nine on that port or if not we have a new ports you will. Have to search for your enterprise and enable the port so right now we are valid to remote into this. Computer and thats great but were gonna be showing in to go to setup wherever we are now before we. Get into this we need to change some more settings for this by default i dont want to leave that.

Default port from 3389 and i want to change it to something more secure so first thing you do is. Pretty much you need to change this port so were going to go ahead and open up reg edit so. Pretty much its registry editor and were going to go ahead and type it in and youll probably be prompted. Go ahead and press yes and here i am with all different folders from last times ive used this im. Actually going to just minimize most of this back up and youll probably look like this when you see it.

It pretty much looks like that so were going to do is go to a specific location so we need. To go to the hkey underscore local underscore machine and then we need to use system then select current control. Set and then select control yes its going to be a lot of list to get to this and next. Youre going to go ahead im going to slide this over and youre going to see terminal server go ahead. And select it and then youll see win stations and then youll see remote desktop tcp now technically if you.

Have a older version then other than windows 10 i think we have like eight or maybe seven there might. Be a little bit different maybe like xp you might need to create a you might have a different folder. Example so it might look like a folder like this called port number it might be in there and then. You would have to select it thats what it would look like but technically we dont have one because were. On windows 10 we dont have that folder it all just got moved into the folder of remote desktop tees.

Underscore tcp so here we are and were going to go to this big list and were going to look. For the one thats called port number if you do not have it im actually going to see if its. Right here port number is right there you should have it its pretty much simple if not you would have. To create a new um d word and youll just have to name it port number for it so here. It is port number and youre wondering like what is this value data im like it doesnt say that its.

Um three three eight nine were actually gonna select to decimal and then we have this option where its three. Three eight nine we need to choose a different port other than that because you want people to hack into. Your computer for it so im actually gonna go ahead and open up a browser and show you this cool. Link right here that tells you what ports are most likely being used for this list so heres a big. List from all different companies and servers that uses ports for this and what im going to look is maybe.

Around like the 5000 area depending on your service provider you might need to choose a different range so right. Here lets see lets go to like four thousands around here i see this from all different ports and these. Are some that arent even this so an example after four one nine hundred four one nine hundred whatever for. 190 um you pretty much see this right here and then it jumps into four one nine eight so that. Gives us pretty much a range from four one nine one all the way to four one nine seven and.

You can change this to any one you can choose any one just within that range and the pain you. Can choose it if you want to its not being used also so again just choose a random one so. Like right here heres the range from after four zero zero one to four zero eighteen so im gonna change. Im gonna choose the default like four zero zero two as it for the one im gonna use for that. Range so right here im gonna change it to four zero zero two and thats what its gonna be done.

Im gonna press ok and its pretty much been changed so now when i come on here it looks like. That i go to decimal its pretty much set from hexadecimal to decimal so now its been done were going. To need to restart this computer so lets go ahead and let it do its work so here we are. Getting ready to sign back into this computer and let me get into it again here it is and im. Going to pretend like im going to try and remote in right now where i was just at so heres.

The computer and technically i can type in the ipad just to and itll work the same way im going. To try and press connect and its not going to its going to sit here and load and say you. Cant connect so im like okay well maybe i need to enable the ability for the port so what you. Have is you have a name of the computer or the ip address so example if its the name then. You can leave it as it is then you can put the colon right here quotation what are the equivalent.

Quotations regardless of three those two dots you know what they are and what were going to do is go. Ahead and type in that four zero zero two that we just did and its still not laying so .
