Hi Experts.   I have a leased line with a CISCO 805 at each end which I configured using Configmaker.    I am able to ping workstations on both sides of the leased line but I cannot print to network printers or connect to a PC's via RDP.  In standard a configuration, is it possible that the routers are blocking certain ports or protocols?  On both routers I have only TCP/IP enabled.   Many Thanks

hi, you need to open the RDP port (3389) to the machine you want to connect to (port forward).

or if you want to make your both sides to work like LAN, first you need 2 logical network addresses
for example: 192.168.x.y (site one) , 192.168.z.y (site 2), and configure nat for that addresses.

Hi - I dont see anywhere in Configmaker where I can open or close ports - are they closed by default?   I would like to operate as on a LAN with all ports open

also, if I configure nat on both sides will it simulate a LAN on both sides?
