Router question... possibly firewal, Xserve trying to access remotely
Posted on 2004-08-10
So we are running a Macintosh X-serve at work. I am temporarily in charge until we find some one new to be the PC guy.
The big boss, wants his mac as well as the xserve to be able to access them remotely. I set up the macs and it all works inside the network, but when you go offsite and try to access it doesnt work. ( I use AFP, Go > connect to server)
we have a t1 behind a cisco 2600 router. How do I set this up?
How do I connect to this router? i tried typing the ip into a web browser but get a password prompt. the password I recieved does not work, and it may not be correct. if i were to reset the router, would it be very hard to set it back up? (since I am not sure if the password is right or not)
There is also a small tiny device, I think its a firewall. its called a "snap gear" box.... sme-550 is the model number, I can recall.
Basicaly, what I want to know is what might be blocking the remote connection.... I think its the router....... but assurance?
Also, how do I connect to the router, and edit the settings.... if I have the wrong password, what would I need to set up with the router, if I were to re-set it....
thanks in advance, and I hope you big techies over here can help a guy out.... I really appreciate it!
