Remote Access with a Custom URL and Port

If, instead of using Screens Connect, you rely on a third-party service such as DynDNS Remote Access or use a public IP address to access your computer across the Internet, be sure to configure your connection settings accordingly.

For non-secure connections:

  • Open the saved screen settings. The Computer Info tab will be selected.
  • In the Address or Hostname field, enter your custom URL or public IP address.
  • In the Port field, enter the port number the remote VNC service is listening on.

For secure connections:

  • Open the saved screen settings. The Computer Info tab will be selected.
  • In the Address or Hostname field, enter information for the local computer (the machine Screens is running on).
  • In the Port field, enter the port number that the local Screen Sharing service is listening on (the default is 5900).
  • Click the Secure Connection tab.
  • If necessary, activate Enable Secure Connections.
  • In the Host field, enter the IP address/hostname/URL for the remote computer.
  • In the Port field, enter the port number that the remote VNC service is listening on.
