pcanywhere over isdn

By gmcnamara ·
Hi all
I have two machines one win98 the other win2000 both running pcanywhere 10.0 over isdn,they can easily run pcanywhere over analog lines no problem but will not connect over the isdn,the host just drops the call..i have tried different protocols v120 on both ends but still no luck the isdn modem is a zxcel omninet and an mri mr isdn modem on hte other end.I am wondering if any one has come accross this problem before i live in ireland so its european isdn im dealing with
thanks for your time

regards

are you sure it is not a firewall issue? you'll need to open up the port pcanywhere uses...check symantec's website for further info and for extra security, move the port off the default one used by pcanywhere, (you'll need to configure the host, the client and the firewall for the new port number). also tell pcanywhere not to advertise the host. hope this helps

well, if you have isdn, you have a router. which hopefully has some firewall capability that has been implemented. so you are saying, you sure it is not blocking/forwarding any ports? (it should be). good thing for you to know how to configure and backup by the way...

no thanks again,but its not a router its an zyxel omni net d isdn modem with no firewall capabilities that i am aware of ,and it connects to the web perfectly asides from pcanywhere..also the pc its on is running win98 and no other firewall software or port filtering software installed.maybe i do need to specify which port pcanywhere uses but i dont know if you can do this in win98?maybe if you know you might let us know?I know how to specify ports in win2k but not win98.thanks for your interest anyway
regards

This should be a windows or networking questions ... wonder why its here ....

Anyway, you seems to be describing an ISDN to ISDN dailup and not a ISDN to ISP coneection right? If that's the case, it doesn't sound like a PCAnywhere problem, it's probably some communication issues with the modems.

Though I don't think I will be able to assist you, without you providing any error messages.

The problem u are facing could range from protocol settings to mtu setting between the two modems. I am not familiar with the two modems used, so I am not sure what their capabilities or spec are.

It could also be a simple handshake issue between the two host and modem.

If would be nice if you could provide error messages given by the modem and host.
