Windows XP - PCanywhere remote desktop host w/ D-link 604 Router

    I currently have two computers on a networking using broadband cable.  They are connected through a d-link 604 router.  What I want to do is set up my computer, so I can connect to it from other places using pc anywhere (I have xp home and don't have ICS, so i'm using a third party program).  What my problem is I cannot figure out how to get IP forwarding enabled, so it knows to connect to my pc.  I went to the pcanywhere site and opened up the correct ports, and i'm not quite sure what i'm missing.  The program is set up correctly with logins and such, because I can log in from my other pc, but not from outside the network.  Any help would be appreciated, I know i'm missing something....

Does each machine have a Public IP?
If not, you need to set your Router to FWD the ports to the private ip in question (you can change the ports in PCAnywhere if you want to do this on both machines).
You can forward ports on the 504, so I will assume it can be done on the 604.

If each machine has a public IP, then the problem is more than likley with your 3rd party firewall software, it is probably blocking the ports, check the logs and see if this is true.

Either way, let me know how you get on, and if I ave asumed your setup i9ncorrectly, please fill in the gaps.
