You'll have to configure the linksys router to forward the PC Anywhere ports to the desired machine running PCAnywhere.  Personally, I'd suggest if the client uses Windows XP Pro, ditch PC Anywhere and use Remote Desktop connection instead - much better performance - and FREE!

Log onto the router and select the advanced tab (usually present on linksys devices) go to port forwarding and set up the following ports to forward all traffic to the internal IP address of the machine in question.

Ports: 5631,5632,22,65301

This will allow external PC anywhere traffic to route to a local address (192.* etc).

Barry

filters are normally used to block ports rather than forward them, you'll need to look through the config pages and find something referring to port forwarding.

just looked at the manual for that router from linksys's website, and it shows a tab called forwarders under advanced. That's where it needs to be put.

If IP is not static ip go to: http://www.dslreports.com/whois this will tell you your public ip on the internet side of the router.
 Unfortunately you have a Linksys router d-link and netgear have a feature that wouks with www.dyndns.org where you can setup a dns address on the router (with free account setup) then you would just setup the client to connect to "yourdnsname.dyndns.org" and you wouldn't have to keep checking the ip.  You can still do this but you'll have to download a small program and run it on the host pc.

www.dyndns.org have software that you can download that will "touch" your A records hosted on their DNS settings so that if your IP address ever changes it is automatically updated. This way you will be able to set up the pcAnywhere client to always point to (for example) officepc.dyndns.org instead of an IP address (e.g. 81.118.118.21). If you log onto dyndns.org you will be able to create an account, then you just need to download the software client.

I have port forwarded theses ports to my inside computers addreess 192.168.1.100 5631,5632,22,65301 I then setup a account on dynds.com eberhardts.homedns.org this points to my firewall address, then I downloaded a client to keep the address correct. I then went in teh firewall and told it about the dynds etc. I then started a host on the computer, and then created a remote on teh remote computer pointing to the dns name. It will not connect any ideas?

I am assuming that 192.168.1.100 and you have kept pcaw at defaults, the client (remote pc) that is trying to connect should be setup to connect to eberhardts.homedns.org on those ports.
in the "port forwarding table" you should have ports forwarded to 192.168.1.100 (host pc not router). 5631,5632.  If its still not working you can put 192.168.1.100 on the DMZ JUST TO TEST ONLY.
in case that fails you have to double check your firewall settings.
