Configure my wireless (Belkin) router to work with Remote desktop and a comcast fixed IP?
Posted on 2009-12-28
I am getting desperate! I have comcast cable with a fixed ip.
I have an XP Pro box that I need to remote desktop into (it has to be RDP, not logmein, etc.).
On the comcast router I have port 3389 forwarded to the ip address of the XP box.
in that configuration it all works like a dream. I can remote in no problem.
now, when I plug in my belkin wireless, it still works fine.
but, when any computer connects to the beklin and gets a dynamic address, the remote desktop no longer works. I can remove the computers from the belin and then RDP starts working again no problem.
something is going on...
anyone have any ideas?
