Accessing Computer from school

Recommended Posts

Hello

 

I am currently attending school. I was wondering if there is a program(prefably portable to put on USB, plus also i dont have admin on the computer i am using so i can't install any programs) that would allow me to view my computer/files from school, well not just school but anywhere i go. I want to be able to access my programs and documents. Hamachi wont work because i can't install it on the computer. Also the internet is protected by the DET Portal(most useless thing ever created by the DET)

 

 

I have given you all the information i dont want anyone to accuse me of trying to hack into something.

 

 

Thank-You James

 

 

PS there is internet sites that allows me to do this but these sites are blocked :S

Sounds like it's doing exactly what it's supposed to, sorry. Why not get a laptop & a wireless plan then you can do whatever you like.

What files do you have at school that add up to 750 gb of information.

 

Is it video editing or something?

 

P.s a couple of hundred bux will get you a nice 1tb external.

he wants access to his mp3's and porn while at school.

 

 

school is for learning buddy.

 

 

and you need to go back to school, because he very clearly states he wants to view his "computer/files from school, well not just school but anywhere i go. I want to be able to access my programs and documents."

Huh, so he does, i just read "computer/files from school" and my brain assumed the files were at school, if you catch my drift.

 

But yeah now you mention it, obviously porn.

 

Whats that program in Winamp that allows you to stream home files/mp3s? I had a play with it and it looked pretty cool.

Still, my suggestion is valid.

If you want to access your home files from school then you can connect remotely to your PC.

start, run, cmd, ping, localhost. Do this at home and you can obtain your ip address. Type your ip address into a browser and hit enter. You should be prompted

to log in. Append /C:\ to whatever is displaying up in the URL or ip address is being displayed in your browser and navigate from there. Should work.

Erm, no it won't. It'll just display your computer (host) name.

See.

What you need to do is go here. <-- That'll tell you your IP assigned by you ISP.

 

I think what you were meaning was running ipconfig. That just tells you your computers IP, if you connect to the internet via a router or LAN or ADSL modem, etc.

Welcome to At0mic. where everyone does everything the hard way :P

 

go to www.noip.com and sign up.

 

Install the client on your home PC. This will let you point www.myhomepc.no-ip.com or whatever you make, to your external IP at all times.

 

It'll update your UP every few hours if you use a dynamic iP etc too.

 

Next step is to grab TightVNC

http://www.tightvnc.com/

 

run the server on your home PC and manually set the ports for it to use.

 

Next, open your router config and fin the port forwarding settings.

 

Find out your PCs internal ip address (command prompt: ipconfig /all) and forward those ports to your internal IP.

 

then you'll wanna make sure any firewalls etc allow connections.

 

so from here its as simple as opening 'vncviewer.exe' and typing:

 

www.mypcathome.no-ip.com:123456

 

(123456=whatever port you set it to)

 

a few steps, but very little work. most is just install and go.

I'm sorry if it doesn't work for you Electro, but it works for me. That's odd. But as you said, there's always ipconfig.

Either way thats your internal IP address as everyone is behind a router these days.

 

My suggestion is the only 'easy' way to do it, unless the router itself supports DyDNS or whatever. However i still find my steps easier than a ddns router setup.

well that goes without saying i thought.

 

The connection from your school PC to your home one will be SLOWER than initially downloading the files from wherever you got them.

 

All you'll be able to do is access word docs and transfer basic files, which is all i assume you wanna do. as you said MP3s and basic games can fit on USB key.
