PocketCloud will connect to my PC while on the same network, but not outside of it...
I would appreciate any help with this problem. My pocket cloud app will connect to my home desktop while I am connected to the Internet from within the same network, but as soon as I leave and connect to a different network or connect to 3G, it will no longer connect. I get the same generic error message "server not found". I have tried using the uVerse gateways IP address instead of the machine and have had no luck. I am assuming it is probably a setting issue within the gateway, but cannot figure it out. Have a great day...
Latest version of Wyse PocketCloud for iOS
Running on iPad 32gb, wifi 3G, running latest iOS software
Trying to connect to a gateway desktop PC running windows 7 ultimate
That is wirelessly connected to ATT uverse through a 2wire router
The Wyse companion is installed and running. The only time I have an issue is when the iPad is connected to another network (I.e. Work or a hotspot) or if I am connected via 3G. When I am on my home network, the same as the desktop, it connects via an RDP connection just fine. Am I only able to connect via a VNC connection when outside of my home network?
You need your external IP address to connect over 3G or outside your own Wi-Fi network. You can visit http://whatsmyip.net to find out what that is.
You will also need to setup port forwarding in your router. You can learn how to do that herehttp://www.wyse.com/products/softwar.../faq/index.asp under "How do I configure my router for RDP so I can connect to my home PC?". The instructions will be a bit different for your AT&T Gateway, you may need to call them to figure out how to do it.
If port forwarding is working correctly, you should be able to connect to your PC from outside your network from any Windows PC using the RDP client. This will help you isolate the problem. If you can connect from a PC, you should be able to connect with PocketCloud. You can also visit our knowlege base at www.wyse.com/manuals and search for KB article #18295 for more information on port forwarding.
