unable to connect to vpro system using vnc viewer plus from remote computer


I have setup a new vpro computer and I am able to connect to it from another computer on the local lan using the intel system defence utility and vnc viewer plus. However, I am not able to connect to the Vpro computer from outside of the local lan or from the internet. I have setup port forwarding on the local router to fordward port 16992 to the vpro computer ip address. I am able to connect to the vpro computer from the internet using the intel system defence utility, but not with vnc viewer plus. when I bring up vnc viewer plus on the remote computer and click connect, I enter the vpro user id and password and in a few seconds I get the following message: "the connecion closed unexpectedly". I have also disabled all antivirus and firewalls on the remote computer. Any advice to get vnc viewer plus to work would be greatly appreciated.

May not be the way your looking for, but if you configure your router to have a DMZ computer, and make that computer the target system, you should be able to access it from the internet.

You need to also forward port 16994 to the machine. I had the same problem, and a colleague gave the right hint. Even though, 19662/16993 are the most obvious ports to forward, vPro systems actually also use ports 16994/16995 - so these also need to be forwarded - depending on whether you use TLS or not.

I hope this helps.
