I simply want to dial onto these pcs using Pc anywhere.  They are ona network 192.168.1.xx and the router is set to and connected to wan on firewall, pc are on the lan.

I want to dial in using my isdn router as, the only prob is firewall is blocking me.  I know I have to open a port or something but I am not certain how to do this.
i.e what port to use etc, what I set as destination Ip.

hope someone could help here,
