Cisco Routers

By jasonbis ·
Can anyone give me the exact description of how to configure a cisco 676 router to allow me to connect to it remotely? I have a cable modem at home and DSL at the router location. I have pcAnywhere and would like to connect to other workstations behind the router but need to tell the router what ports to foward tcp/ip packets to. Please help and provide steps or documentation. I have never configured a router before and do not know any of the commands.

Hi
Please visit this page for detaild instruction on cisco 676 adsl router. http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/dsl_prod/c600s/c676/676qs.htm
regarding PC anywhere: When a PCAnywhere server is set up to receive remote requests, it listens on TCP port 5631. This allow you to run a PCAnywhere host and use the Internet to connect back and remotely control your PC.

The documentation for this website http://www.cisco.com/univercd/cc/td/doc/product/dsl_prod/c60 0s/c676/676qs.htm does not provide me with any instructions as how to open ports on my router or configure it to allow a pcanywhere connection.

Actually there is a Qwest website that tells you how to how forward listening ports via NAT. Don't know if you use qwest though, but if you do, you can call the support team. I had a 675 once and did the same thing except different ports. In reality, it's telling the router to forward all ports to a certain NAT'ed address behind it..
