I have a WKS54G Linksys wireless g router with the latest firmware installed. I have 2 machines: computer #1 :local static IP:192.168.1.102 computer #2 :local static IP:192.168.1.103 with microsoft windows xp professional connected to this router and need to be able to connect to either machine while I am on business. I am using windows professional remote desktop to connect via broadband connection. Both machines have remote desktop enabled and are able to connect to each other locally using local IP address. Also I can take the 1 successful remote desktop port forwarding configuration, set either machine to the "port forwarded" specified IP and remote desktop will connect to either machine. I have 3 tabs in my web console of my linksys config page. "Port Forwarding" " Port Triggering" "UPnP Forwarding" I have went to the port forwarding tab and created a new port forward like this: Port 3389~3389 TCP/UDP to computer #1 :192.168.1.102 Enabled When I go offsite and open remote desktop, I input my router real world IP address, the forwarding is successful, and I get the login page of computer #1 :192.168.1.102. The problem occurs with the other machine. Microsoft says that all you need to do is on computer #2 :local static IP:192.168.1.103 you change the DEFAULT windows xp remote desktop listening port to something else, which i used "3390". I checked netstat -a on both computers, and on computer #1 :local static IP:192.168.1.102 I can see port 3389 active listening, and on computer #2 :local static IP:192.168.1.103 I can see port 3390 active listening. This is were I have seen many people say what to do from here. I tried setting up another port forwarding, for a total of 2 port forwardings under the "port forwarding" tab. So they look like this: Port 3389~3389 TCP/UDP to computer #1 :192.168.1.102 Enabled Port 3390~3390 TCP/UDP to computer #2 :192.168.1.103 Enabled I go offsite,start remote desktop, enter in main router real world IP 123.456.789.111 and the 1st forwarding still works and I see the remote login for computer #1 :192.168.1.102. As per microsoft, to connect to computer #2 :192.168.1.103[with the modified port of 3390] I select and start remote desktop, enter in main router real world IP 123.456.789.111:3390 *notice the 3390 on the end*. I get a connection error "client could not connect to remote computer" So I dont know what to try, all remote desktop works between each other, but remotely it seems like forwarding just isnt setup right. Could someone shed some light on this or have some solid troubleshooting steps?
