Alright so i hope this is the right spot to post this....

Anyways, we have a DSL line set up with a static IP address which runs from the DSL to a small 5 port router which has two computers connected on it.

Well i want to be able to set up one of the computers to have remote desktop which can be accessed from my house. I have camera software running on it so i need to be able to view video on a custom program running mpeg video. Anyways, i'm not sure how to go about setting up the remote desktop, considering that the computer gets its own ip 192.168.1.1 and the other computer is 192.168.1.2

Well i know i cant connect to remote desktop through that ip but i want to be able to connect through my static ip on my dsl. Would i have to only have one computer running off the DSL box to actually be able to do this? Well thanks for the help guys...

Oh yeah, i tried www.logmein.com and that doesnt work because it wont display video


Thanks for any help or input~!

Ok i understand how to do all that, but my question is does that mean i have to set up some kind of a VPN network?

You don't have to have a VPN, you can use the actual IP address of the computer.
"Note: If you're not connecting to the host computer through a VPN, you'll need to use the actual IP address of the host computer instead of the computer name."
As for the first statement in the article that only means you need a computer with a static IP address thats always connected to the internet.
