I am wanting to access a PC remotely from my mobile phone using TeamvViewer. However, I don't want to leave my PC on all day to use this software. Hence the need for Wake on Lan functionality.. I've had a fixed IP from 2002 until the move in 2017, but the IP address was not transfered nor a new one given when I moved to this residence.
The documentation says I require a public address which can be either a fixed IP or a DNS name vwith the help of a dynamic DNS provider.. Is there any way to do this without an extra cost involved?
My account type is FibreX (900dl/100ul) here in Christchurch.
I also do the same here so what you want to look for is a Dynamic Domain Name System (DDNS). I got rid of the vodafone ultra hub and replaced it with an Asus unit that has this service biult into the router.
All I have to do then is input my DDNS name as the address and the router ports it through to the machine I wish to view.
Interesting. I have a Linksys WRT1900ACS, but unfortunately Linksys only have a PAID subscription based DDNS for security cameras. I'll look into getting an Asus router with inbuilt DDNS if VodafoneNZ has nothing to offer. I miss having a fixed IP. (Dammit, Vodafone! Why did you take it away???) BTW, do you notice any slowdown in throughput when using that service?
