Need help supporting remote users

By tony-g ·
I'm not sure if this is a hardware or software issue:

I'm trying to perform remote support to a network of 5 Pc's (running xp home and pro). They all have static addresses assigned (, 20, 35, 40, 52).

They all have PcAnywhere (ver10.5) installed as a host with a user(me) added with the same user id and password.

Sometimes I need to log in after hours when the users are gone, that is why I chose PcAnywhere as a connection tool.

In PcAnywhere, I have assigned incrementing IP addresses to the 2nd - 5th Pc.

I have added the assigned incrementing ports to port forwarding on the Linksys Befsr81 router and also in port triggering.

I can only access the first Pc ( If I log into PcAnywhere using 255 in the last node, I should see all Pc's (hosts turned on waiting to be accessed). I only see the 1st one.

Can anyone help? This is driving me crazy.
