Connecting to a pc behind a router with firewall
Posted on 2008-10-17
I have been trying to connect to several PC's on the office network behind a router with a firewall. I have forwarded the ports to the computers but I am not able to connect. I can ping the router but cannot connect to the PCs. The forwarded ports look like this:
Private IP: 123.456.78.90
Protocol Type: TCP
Private Port: 5620
Public Port: 5620
I put the router's ip address as the ip address to connect to in pcAnywhere's Quick connect and I have configured the Host communications tab to use; data port - 5620 and status port - 5620 but still cannot connect. What have I missed?
