Hi to all!
I'm not too experienced with networking and I have a request for my application that i'm not sure how to implement.
My client want's to be able to connect to his office machine from his home using the remote desktop. Now, that wouldn't be a problem if it was one machine connected directly to the internet. But it's most often a LAN in the office and he wants to be able
to connect to the one where my application is installed on. Now, I know about port forwarding on the router to dispatch connections to specific machine but I was wondering if there is some way to circumvent router setup?
I was wondering how MSN or Skype work? For example, i have MSN&Skype installed on several machines on my LAN and all of them work properly without any router setup so there must be some way of doing this.
Obviously, i would program a little server routine that my application would notice every so often about its current IP address (but that's routers IP address, not the specific machines one).
Any ideas would be highly appreciated.
