Yes, you can.argothian wrote:If that is the case, can i create my own repeater? Cause i'm required to set up the PHW for my company to support outside user.
My computer ------> repeater <---------- User
Am i able to create a connect like the one above?
I want to clarify one point first:argothian wrote:i required to create a proxy that will allow my computer to use the proxy to connect to the user and for the user to use the proxy to connect to my computer.
What kinds of restriction? A NAT router, or a proxy?argothian wrote:- i'm sitting behind my company's network which restrict internet access
This is the most difficult part, because every network have different configuration, you need to build several PHW server, or a PHW server with different connecting options.argothian wrote:- the people i need to support are usually oversea with internet connection

Is the following your present network configuration:argothian wrote:I sit behind a proxy. ........ computer(B) with direct internet access .........
Yes, it will work with proper configuration.argothian wrote:But the change is this i need to setup my own repeater on computer B and make use of that repeater to connect to my users. Will it work?
It is true.argothian wrote:i was told that if i set up my own repeater the speed would be faster
Yes, when you have a repeater running on computer, it wil act as a bridge between PHW-server & PHW-viewer (when both ends connect to this repeater), thus the connection can be established.argothian wrote:And if this is the case, Computer B will only act as a repeater with no function? Which mean i only just have to on the computer?
Before answer your question, I want to explain the concept of the repeater operation first. I will correct your setup as follow:argothian wrote:Correct me if i'm wrong, if i were to set up my own repeater at computer B.................
Yes, if the proxy allows https (most company's proxy do). The PHW-viewer can use https-proxy method to connect to the repeater at Computer B.argothian wrote:if i were to set up my own repeater at computer B (B is connected directly to the internet), will i be able to connect to my user from computer A (which is behind a proxy)?
Yes you can, but the setup depends on the network envirnoment.argothian wrote:And will i be able to connect to my user using the repeater at B from other computer?
That's fine. Computer C is behind a NAT, but the PHWserver.exe is making the outbound connection, thus port forwarding is not required.argothian wrote:do i need to use port forwarding in my case? The connection from C to repeater is fine.......Computer C (192.168.0.23)
Computer B (repeater) is behind a NAT, and because the repeater is necessary to wait for the income connection from PHWserver (using 5500 default) & PHWviewer (using 5901 default), so that port forwarding is required. You need to forward the two ports (from NAT router) to Computer B.argothian wrote:do i need to use port forwarding in my case? .......Repeater at computer B (192.168.0.76)
When a PHWviewer using the repeater, it initiates outbound connection (to repeater) too, thus no port forwarding is required.argothian wrote:do i need to use port forwarding in my case? .......Computer A (sapm.spam.spam.spam, access internet via proxy)
From the information you provided, the IP of the computer B (192.168.0.76) is a private IP, then most likely it is behind a NAT Router (isn't it?). In such case you must have the router forwarding the PHW signal to the repeater.argothian wrote:So i need to forward the two ports at computer B?
What I mentioned of the authentication is the Authentication Of The Proxy, not the authentication of Windows (the User Name/Password of the logon screen). Are we talking the same matter?argothian wrote:and my company requires authentication which means pchelpware will not work in my case?
This is not a waste!!!argothian wrote:After some time i realize that computer B is a waste as i only run the repeater on that PC and nothing else. Is there a way where i can run the repeater and viewer at computer B and make use of it as a gateway for me (at computer A) to access computer C?
Yes the PCHviewer can handle one remote session only, but you can run multi sessions of PHWviewer at the same time, and each of them connected to different client. The only requirement is all them using different unique ID.argothian wrote:I dont think pchelpware allows 2 connections at the same time right?
You need to log into the management GUI of the router to make the setting. You need to reference the product manual.argothian wrote:- how do i get the router to forward the signal to the repeater?
That means the setting is not stored inside the windows registry, but the IE is configured to run a script to get the setting of the proxy. PcHelpWare is unable to work under this condition directly -- it need to retrieve the setting from registry.argothian wrote:- under my internet explorer option, the 'use automatic configuration script' option is selected, does this means pchelpware will work?
Not surprising, as all parties are inside the same LAN, not signal routing is required.argothian wrote:Is is rather confusing as when i test with all the computer using the 192.180.x.x ip address it can work it is just that when i try to switch computer A to 10.100.x.x ip it just cannot seem to connect.
Sorry but I think you need someone that is technically stronger, and a man having solid understanding of your company's network infrastructure to help you. As your company use a proxy to control the internet access, then obviously some kinds of limitation or blocking do exist.argothian wrote:is it the problem with the internet access? does this means my company's router is blocking the signal or something like that?
