iam building vb chat application using winsock, work on LAN but problem that face me that iam tring to connect to a computer in a network
this computer in a network of three computers "192.168.2.1" and "192.168.2.2" and "192.168.2.3" local Ip's and with only one internet IP, so the three are connected to the same internet ip "22.214.171.124" and i want to talk with the third one?iam outside this network. How...
in my Computer app i have that outside LAN & connect to internet:
Winsock.Close Winsock.RemotePort = 3917 Winsock.RemoteHost = "126.96.36.199" 'remote ip of the lan, that has the client computer Winsock.Connect & in Client that on the LAN & connect to internet: Winsock.LocalPort = 3917 Winsock.Listen
so i having this values for ex: client local ip "192.168.1.3" and client remote ip "188.8.131.52" i know how to get this values but i want to know how to connect from server to client using this values.
as i read some ask me to configure the modem or "router" to forward this port to my local ip but i don't want to configure , absolutely there is a way without configure the modem how all chat works like msn,..
so i want without any hardware configuration, i want it like using Gateway or anything i don't know what? so it will be chatting over internet not over LAN.
