PCANYWHERE TCP/IP connection problem

By raleigh ·
I have a Netware 5 Server with Win 95 & 98 clients. I have been running PCANYWHERE using a 56K modem to get to my desktop/ Netware Admin and remote to the Server. I would reboot my station and leave the login screen up and PCANYWHERE waiting for aconnection. We recently installed a DSL router and I configured all stations with their own IP address. I want to be able to have some people come into their stations remotely using PCANYWHERE with a TCP/IP connection via the Internet. I have tested this at work setting one PC up with a dial up connection and then setting my station as the host (both set up to use TCP/IP connections. The problem is that while waiting for a connection my server goes up to 30% utilization and I time out trying to connect. I have tried running a PING from the remote maching and it works fine. If I log into the network the utilization goes to 0-1% and I am able to log in. I want employees to be able to leave their log on up on their desk and PCANYWHERE waiting for connectio

You may want to contact your DSL provider to find out if there are traffic restrictions on the router. They may have to let you know the specifics on allowing PC anywhere traffic into your network. Ping almost always is allowed, but other types ofTCP/IP traffic are often restricted to keep the network secure.

First of all, I would not recommend doing what you are trying to do because you will be creating a major security hole. If you insist, you will probably need to reconfigure your DSL router and open up the ports that PCANYWHERE needs to establish a TCP/IP connection.

I do this very thing with my computer occassionally. I have two registered IP addresses. One is for my server. The other I use only for the NAT table. I then point the NW NAT (Network Address Translation) table to point the separate IP address (NIC registered) to my personal machine internal IP address. It works great.
