Remote access to your PC


"Set up your computer for remote activation and control."


Probably each of us had a situation like this:
I came to work \ study and realized that he had forgotten on a home PC any file \ document and go home absolutely not an option.
Or simply forgot the name of the movie recently watched and want urgent recall.
For this we will use a bunch of Wake-on-lan and RDP
Example of setting will be held on the example of a computer with windows 8.1 pro and router d-link dir 615 with a static IP address
Article will consist of two parts:
- Setting up your computer
- Configure router
So there you go

Setting Up Your Computer

1. Setting WON (Wake-on-lan)
Wake-on-LAN - a technology that allows to remotely turn on the computer by sending through a local area network special sequence of bytes - data package (the so-called 'magic packet')
To do this, we need
1.1 "iron" computer must meet the following requirements:
-source supply must meet the standard ATX 2.01
-Materinskaya card must support Wake-on-LAN
are network card (in the form of expansion cards or built into the motherboard) must support the Wake -on-LAN
-If using an external (not built into the motherboard) network card, and at least one of these boards do not meet the PCI 2.2 standard, or later, it needs a special three-wire connector cable to connect the Wake-on-LAN on motherboard and network cards

1.2 Device Manager (system-device manager-network adapters, network adapter, our property, power management) need to configure power management network adapter as follows:


1.3 Furthermore, it should be in the BIOS of the motherboard to include the ability to wake the computer devices on the PCI bus and PCI-Express. Usually, this is done in the section «Power Management Setup», or «ACPI Configuration», etc. called something like: «Wake-Up by PCI device», «Wake-Up by PCI-E device», «Power on by Ethernet Card». Depending on the version of BIOS, it can look like this:

1.4 Sometimes the resolution mode remote power supply in the BIOS settings is not enough. In these cases, you must open: system-device manager-network adapters, network adapter, our properties, in addition, find the parameter awakening and set him to "correct" value. Example setting for a couple of different adapters:

Go ahead
2. Configure RDP
RDP (Remote Desktop Protocol) - Protocol Remote Desktop
2.1 allows incoming RDP connections on your computer:
Spoiler: Warning!
Implement incoming connections through Remote Desktop possible to the following version of OS the Windows:
the Windows XP Professional;
the Windows 7 / 8.1 Professional;
the Windows 7 / 8.1 Ultimate;
the Windows 7 / 8.1 Corporate.
In Windows XP Starter, Home Edition, in Windows Vista / 7 / 8 / 8.1 Starter, Home Basic, Home Premium opportunity incoming connections available.
Open System Properties (WIN + Break) - Advanced System Settings - Remote access and set up as shown on the screenshot

Since we are going to connect on your account (it is assumed that it has administrative rights), then this setting is the computer ends.

Setting up the router

1. for RDP
port forwarding 3389
The D-link routers, this setting is called the Virtual Server or Port Forwarding
Go to the configuration of our router (for dlink in the address bar of your browser)
Advanced tab and setting Virtual Server (Port Forwarding or respectively), and configure as shown in the screenshot (In this case, in the IP Address field specify the local IP of our computer, and in the Public Port of any non-standard free port
2. For WOL
adjusts to the router forwarding UDP port 9 to the broadcast address of our internal network. (For reference - shirokoveshatelny - is such address where the last octet (the last number in the address) - is replaced by the 255. So for the subnet broadcast address is
Do not forget in the IP Address field to specify the local IP of our computer
