    The fact that they have same ISP and same windows setup is irrelevant.  ADSL assign different "vitrual" IP to each modem on the ADSL head end, so as far as QWest or whoever give their ADSL service, these two people are different IPs if they are on different modems.  What is probably the case is that one person has paid for "real IP number" and the other has not.  Usually ADSL does not provide a real IP number for you to connect to, unless you pay them for it.

    Have them check these free services to get a DNS listing for their IP number, they are all free services.  YOu cannot do this in a rush, it might take 2 days to get it working right, you MUST have patience, it takes 30 hours for DNS to propagate around the world, you can be in a panic, but it doesnt speed up the net.

    It probably comes down to needing to forward the necesary ports on the 1PC side of things. I am not familiar with Beyond, but other Remote Access solutions (Windows RDP, PC Anywhere) require particular ports to be forwarded through the firewall/router. I will search around for some more info on the BR software.  In the meantime check their support site or forums for inbound TCP ports.
