Running Remote Desktop from network behind a Linksys router and modem.
Posted on 2006-04-03
I have a DSL subscription with a static IP assigned from my ISP. I use Linksys ADSL2MUE modem, WRT54GS wireless broadband router, and WMP54GS as the wireless PCI adaptors on 2 PCs running WinXP Pro and Win 2003. I have configured the router and the PCs with static IP addresses. I properly configured McAfee Personal Firewall and Windows Firewall to open and unblock port 3389 so I can use RDP to get through to one of my PCs. I believe I properly configured the router to unblock and forward port 3389 to an IP address of one of the PCs. I installed DynIP to be able to resolve PC name to get through while I am away, but unfortunately to no avail. When I try to resolve my PC name from within DynIP website, it fails and comes back with “port 3389 is blocked”. Can anyone help me have Remote Desktop my PC please?
