    So our AC went out and we are at a hotel ~ dogs and all! I hate Sacramento so much.


    I have my iPad and was thinkin I could access my desktop thru splashTop.

    That'd be a Hell No. It just says "can't access your computer"

    How come? I really have so much work tom do that is on my flash drive in my computer.

    Did you enter your Gmail address and password on both the iPad and the desktop? Or, did you try the port forwarding approach? You need to have done one or the other...

    I think tomorrow is going to be the hottest day. After that it should cool off a bit. Sorry to hear that you are having problems.

    I didn't enter my gmail address on either. It didn't ask me to. But splash top is always running on my desk top.

    Do I even wanna know what the "port forwarding approach" is? I don't think I could wrap my brain around that one at this time.

    When I am at home in another room and want to access my desktop, I don't remember entering my email and password.

    Did I?:eek:

    So I am sitting in this hotel room, which is very nice and hella cold, smells like weed, though....

    And I can't access my desktop? Man.:(

    You are in the Bay Area ~ it will be cooler for you. Not up here in Sac. I hate it. I actually cried today. Who cries over weather?

    If there was someone that could log into your PC locally and start up gmail you might be able to access it?

    You use the gmail approach when outside your home wifi....when within home wifi...no need to use the "Internet discovery" option.

    Rog ~ are you asking me if there is someone at my home to access my desktop?

    We are all here, babe. It is by now 150 degrees in my little house.:(

    I don't understand why it won't connect. I am five min from home and on wifi. And ST is running on my desktop.


    I'm not getting this, am I?

    You don't need to do anything while on your own home network. However, for remote access via the Internet you will have to enter your Gmail address into the Splashtop software on both devices which is a snap to do. No, you don't want to do the port forwarding and it's no longer necessary. The only bad news is that if you want the connection tonight, you have to go home and get that part of it done.

    It's relatively cool here now, but was a lot warmer earlier, a few miles east is probably similar to Sacramento.

    I hope you can work it out, although you might want to take take a small break. Have a great 4th SweetP! :)

    If your not worried about the home PC overheating. I would consider sending someone home to setup the splashtop client to use the gmail login for locating it on the internet. You'd probably need to set the PC to not go to sleep though. Depends on how long your staying in the hotel and how long it would take to set everything up at home.

    Hopefully not... if it's in a confined space...could either auto-shutdown or get so hot that it melts the solder and pop the chips off the motherboard.


    The Internet discovery/gmail approach works like a charm when outside home wifi network.
