I have pc Anywhere 10.5 installed at my home and at a friends home - from the friends home I can connect to my PC at my house with not problems.
The other way around i.e connecting from my house to thier house causes problems,
Firstly we both have belkin routers, to connect to my friends router admin pages it only works if you go to "<friends wanIP>:8080"
My router can be accessed by just the IP address without the :8080
On my friends computer pcAnywhere host is running as it should be,
on my computer, I open the remote properties and in the "network host PC to control or IP address" I type "HTTP://
<friends wanIP>:8080 (Anything other than this i.e without the http://
or without the :8080 does not allow anything to work)
When it connects, it will initialise connection, then scan for TCP/IP, then a box will come up with waiting for selection at the bottom, but the box is empty, nothing in it to select even though the host is running for TCP/IP conections.
Here is the scren shot of the ports that are forwarded, the PC I want to connect to is 184.108.40.206
Well im stuck so what can I do?
Thanks in advance,
