Question about Linksys Wireless-G WRT54G Router

Remote access to server

Hi,

We are having a problem connecting to our server at the office. It works for a day or so... and when there is no LAN activity, we cannot ping the router from outside.

But if someone at the office connects locally then everything comes back to life and stays that way for a while.

Any ideas? Please!!!

Thank you.

The router has the ability to disconnect itself from the ISP connection if idle for a given amount of time. This feature is probably enabled. It is selectable in the WAN settings by way of a checkbox. The feature accommodates a cost savings for users that pay extra if a certain number of hours of access are exceeded.

As long as you aren't using linux on any of the workstations, I would whole-heartedly recommend LogMeIn (www.logmein.com).

In the rules, you will need to create a new rule that allows your VPN subnets access to you office LAN, and then on your office network gateway, add a route for your VPN subnet pointing back to your checkpoint firewall.

Unable to ping static IP from remote desktop when


Does PING works on the same location where Camera's are located?

Usually, RDP connections uses the same PC on LAN and that should work fine. Please check Camera's configuration; make sure they have valid IP address, SM, Default gateway and DNS servers. Make sure that PC with enabled RDP can PING computers on the LAN either by IP address or Computer name. Make sure they're part of the same WORK GROUP.

Hope this helps! Please provide additional information so I can further assist you.

You need to install a software that will manage your LAN's video recording. That software should work fine within your LAN and is usually provided with the Video Capture Cards where your cameras are connected. This software should have a web portal for you to access via internet utilizing your forwarded port. Thus, you must tell your video software to use your forwarded port for internet viewing. Without this web portal, you can't access your remote LAN videos via internet.

D-Link DI 524 behind VNC access remotely - Need help....


Open a browser and type in htp://192.168.0.1 to access your router's web management interface. Enter the username and password (default is username admin and no password)
Go to the Advanced Tab and Virtual Server
Name=VNC
Private IP=IP Address of your Home notebook
Protocol Type=TCP
Private Port=5800
Public Port=5800
Set Schedule as you like
Enable the rule and click Apply.

To access you Home notebook from anywhere other than your house, go to http://10.0.57.46:5800

Next - remote management of the router.
The IP address that you enter on the remote management page is the IP address that is allowed to connect to the remote management. If the 194.145.183.83 is the IP address of your office, this should work. Be sure you apply a password or anyone going to http://10.0.57.46 will have access to you router, I also recommend changing the port from 80 to 8080 so that http://10.0.57.46:8080 has to be typed to access the remote management interface.

Remote access


Yes it is. You can use the vnc server and client utilities for this. Install VNC server on all the linux pcs. Then install the windows version of vnc on the pc you want to connect FROM.

Give the ip address of the linux pc you wish to connect to, and lo, you get the same desktop that is on the linux pc. Of course you can configure password protection.

Another easy but techie way to connect is with telnet or ssh command after enabling these services on the linux pc.
