I spent much of today trying to set up pcAnywhere to run with a new (or relatively unused) TZ 170 router today. I am used to the simpler linksys systems that allow port forwarding to be simply defined.
I set the router up with 2 services labelled pcanywheretest and pcanywheretest1 on ports 5633 and 5634 respectively, using TCP and UDP protocols respectively.
I then created access rules of the form Source WAN * Destination LAN 192.168.1.200 for service pcanywheretest and pcanywheretest1. That writing is Source area address range (* is of course a wild card).
From within my network, I can telnet to 192.168.1.200 port 5633, which indicates that the pcAnywhere host is running correctly. However attempting to telnet to my external IP address (router has 1 external address only) on port 5633 fails.
Any suggestions about what the next reasonable setup step would be would be much appreciated. I feel like somehow I need to explicitly forward from router (192.168.1.1) to computer IP, but I don't see how to do that using the rules I can create.
