Can someone direct me to a link that explains how to set up PcAnywhere and a Linksys Route so that I can access two or three remote computers attched to a single Linksys router.

    Please follow this article, as I believe this is what you are looking for:

    this basically explains how to change the ports each listen on so you can port forward requests to multiple machines running behind 1 router with 1 public IP address.  You'll just need to configure the linksys router to forward requests to the remote machines' private ip addresses based on the ports you set them to run on (found under "Applications and Gaming" section of most linksys routers)

    Sweet...this is unbelievable.  I have asked this same question 3 tmies and was always given things to do that never worked.  Let me ask you this.  I set up each PCA host to a different port 5631 & 32 on one 5633 & 34 on one and 5635 & 36 on the third one.  Then I went to the router and set up those same ports for the TCIP connections, 119 & 118.

    So now when I go to my computer that I will run Remote on to dial in and try to access the three computers over the internet with my IP address...I am automatically connected to just one of the computers, the 119.  How can I get it to let me choose which one I want.

    You would change the ports you want to connect to from the remote computer.  This would the second "+" expanded on the website I pointed you to.  i.e.:

    I want to change the TCP/IP ports on the remote computer

        Start the pcAnywhere Manager.

        Click Remotes.

        Right-click the remote control item that needs different TCP/IP ports, and then click Properties.

        Ensure that TCP/IP is checked in the Connection Items list, and then click Details.

        Change the Data port (TCP) and Status port (UDP) to the ports that you want pcAnywhere to use.

        Click OK, and click OK again.
         You have now configured the remote control item to connect to a host on a different port.

    I feel like an idiot, but under the Details window in my remote tcp/id I have two choices, Dial up Network where I have check Connet to PcAnywhere hose using a local area network and Gateway, nothing about TCP and UDP ports.  What am I missing.
