Title: Can't Access Remote Computer.
Post by: lydnsn on July 15, 2015, 09:36:13 PM
Hello I have just purchased the new tri band router.DIR-890L. I am quite pleased with it so far It is fast and very stable. I know very little about routing. What i am trying to do is access one computer. I need to have full access to all programs on that computer. I also need to access a printer. So far i haven't had any luck. I am able to reach the router by typing  hostname.info:8080 but that is as far as i can go. I have tried port forwarding but still cant seem to get anywhere. Can someone give me some instructions on how to do this . It is probably very simple but i am doing something wrong. Thankyou

You'll need to contract Microsoft or Apple for network sharing from PC to PC to make sure sharing and remote access is configured on the LAN side of the network. There shouldn't be any configurations need for the LAN side of the router.
