NAT for internet sharing and PCAnywhere

By vibin ·
I'm trying to connect the a clent(boss's Pc running PcAnywhere) computer in Lan through our win 2000 server over the the internet. Boss wants to access his office pc from home which runs PCanywhere too.

I installed NAT in Win200 server thereby disabling Internet Connection sharing (ICS). but when Nat is installed we cannot acess the internet from the lan .

Please help.

NAT for internet sharing and PCAnywhere

by BudTheGrey In reply to NAT for internet sharing ...

You didn't mention what kind of connection you have to the internet. I'm not sure that NAT on Win2K server works with a dial-up connection (not saying it won't, just that I don't know).

Make sure your workstations have valid internal IP addresses, and are set to use the private Ip address of the NAT server as the "gateway". This is the most common cuase of what you're seeing.

If you have broadband, I'd recommend that you spend $60 and purchase a broadband router. That will take care of getting people out to the internet. Then, in the router, you can set up what's called a "virtual server" to allow the boss to connect to his machine with PC/Anywhere. You will need a static internet IP address to really make this work.

I've used a broad brush here; post or e-mail specific questions.

First of all, you can run NAT using a dial up connection if this is the case.Your previous answer sounds good to me but if NAt is runing on this server you will have to create a special port redirection under the properties of your external connection (internet) to the internal ip address of your boss`s PC.

If you hihlight NAT under IP Routing you can go to properties of your remote router and configure this here.
