Need some assistance on properly setting up Remote Utilities. I'm coming fr om GoToAssist / [censored] Rescue where no ports are needed to open up, but its the $$$. Just a weekend warrior with family & friends to support. I will purchase whatever license, either Starter and maybe eventually Pro
I have spent a lot of time playing around and reading the docs. I'm successful, but then something eventually doesn't work.
-Secure enterprise-grade firewall, Sophos UTM
-Always on server, Server 2019
-Want / Need WOL - (I do an app that can wake them also, just got spoiled with GoToAssist)
-8 Computers at home
-2 of which can go anywhere and wh ere they end up, there may be a firewall blocking 5655
-Mobile App - which I understand will get better as time goes on...
Ideas I have tried so far:
No Self-hosted Server / Public ID server / Port 443
In my testing, this appears to connect the best and I don't need to open 443 in my firewall (used on a LAMP server). Only thing is I lose WOL.
My Server / RU Server / 443 and Internet ID. Can't have 443 going to to, two separate machines/VM's. However, if I had two WAN's...
My Server / RU Server / 5655 and Internet ID's. WOL does not work and if my two laptops go off my network, firewalls may block them connecting...
First idea I had was to create DNS entires and use Direct Connections for all of my computers. computer1.domain.com Worked great until I connected to a PC from outside the network. Internally worked perfect.
Another idea I thought, why can't we have both, Internet ID and Direct connect together? Internet ID for away from your network and then local for faster connections and WOL.
Would I just waste 6 Connections and cascade 1 Server (Direct Connect / Port Forwarded) and 5 WOL PC's?
Also a VPN too, but not a fan of that solution.
Is there a performance impact if I'm using a public Internet ID server and if connecting to machines that are on the same network?
Do you think the developer would ever get WOL working through a public ID server, or just self-hosted ID server? Self-hosted is on there feature listed....
Like wow, a lot of thought went into this. Thanks everyone. I'll take any advice and suggestions.
