Direct connection Anydesk.

Direct connect simply means that the AnyDesk software is listening for a connection on the port you specify and than you can connect to it from another AnyDesk client using that computer's IP address and port number. You would need to be on the same network so that the other computer is reachable. You could do IP forwarding, but at that point, you may as well use AnyDesk's alias feature to negotiate the connection. Make sure you allow the connection on the Windows Firewall of the computer that will be listening.
