Try researching this -> Public versus Private IP addresses.
Those 192.x.x.x addresses are not reachable over the internet (your research will tell you why.) You have to decide if it's worth exposing this PC to the internet (there is always a risk) by placing that machine into the DMZ of your router.
I recently relocated to South East Asia. I have stayed in a guest house for two months and my PC and cell phone are connected wirelessly to an access point.
The IP address of the PC is: 192.168.1.10
The IP address of the cell phone is: 192.168.1.3
Port number: 5500
Software on Smart Phone (Android, Samsung Galaxy SII): RealVNC Software on PC: TightVNC
I have tested connecting smart phone-to-PC through VNC before while I was still in my home office in Scandinavia and it used to work.
I wonder if I can connect somehow.
(When I hover over the TightVNC icon on the PC it says 192.168.1.10, 192.168.71.1, 192.168.163.1 (no auth!). Not sure if that's relevant.
The cell phone just says "connecting..." but nothing happens.
Have been trying to solve this on my own for too long. I have tried adjusting settings but no luck so far.
Would appreciate some help.
