Using custom URLs and ports with Screens

If, instead of using Screens Connect, you rely on a third-party service such as DynDNS Remote Access, No-IP 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

Simply enter your custom URL, or public IP address and port number, in the General Info section of the "screen" settings.

For secure connections

When connecting to a remote computer through a SSH tunnel, follow these instructions.

Screens for iOS

Under General Info, enter the local network hostname/IP address and port number for your computer. Once a secure network connection has been established, the SSH tunnel will use this information to connect your Screens session. Note that the default VNC port is 5900.

Under Secure Connection, enter your custom URL or public IP address and port number. Screens will use this information to create a SSH tunnel before connecting to the Screen Sharing service (on Macs) or VNC server (on Windows and Linux).
