Trying to use port forwarding

I am having trouble with port forwarding. I have 5 people in the office I need to be able to connect from home to their win xp pro machines in the office using remote desktop. I have the instructions to edit the registry and did so last night but I can only make a connection from outside the office on 3389. The pc who has 3389 gets thru - no one else. I must be doing something wrong. please help


I want to set up a remote access (from internet) using "Remote Desk" via port 3389 (TCP). I have the 2Wire HomePortal 1100 (I don't see the word Router on it, only Gateway) I don't know if this is a modem or a router.

My problem is that I don't know how to do "port forwarding" so that I can use port 3389 or to confirm if this port is alredy active on my HomePortal. The 2Wire software version is 3.5.5 and I don't find a place to do the forwarding or to confirm it. I would also like to know if there are other ports for "Remote Access". Please help me!!! ..... thanks :-)

Here is some extra info:

Model : HomePortal 1100
Serial Number: 453115135243
Firewall: the one of windows and the one of 2Wire (on my PC).
OS: Windows XP Professional ServicePack 2.

Hi!
i tried to remote access your modem using the serial nos. but it didn't give me anything, pls try to run system setup wizard from your computer by accessing gateway.2wire.net or homeportal/setup, once you have configured the modem with your own settings, please let me know and i'll try to open some ports for you

All configuration can be done with the router GUI.
Firewalls: Server Side Having a server side firewall is the typical configuration on many systems. There is only one method for doing this, whether you use telnet or ssh: map a port to be forwarded to the server in the firewall router. It is not advised that you use telnet from the Internet for security reasons; that is usually why you have a firewall.Decide which method of connectivity will be allowed, and determine what port you will use to forward to this service. If there is only one server involved, you can use port 22 for ssh or 23 for telnet and forward them straight through to the server. But if there are several servers involved and they do not have public IP addresses, you will need to pick different ports on the firewall router and let the router forward those ports to the different internal servers.

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.

How do i install ip cameras so that i can see them over the internet? I have a dvr connected to my 2wire modem and I do have static ips


You need to find out what ports your ip cameras use, and then setup port forwarding on your router. If you have 1 box that controls all the cameras, you just need to forward port 80 traffic to that box. If you have multiple cameras with NO main junction box, you will need to go into the setup on each camera, and specify a port to use.
Then in the router, set up port forwarding to forward each different port, to the camera it goes with. Then when you want to see the camera from home you would type the ip address in the browser, then a colon, then the port number --> IPADDRESS:81

I had exactly the same problem. The solution is to set up pptp as a virtual server pointing to the lan ip of the server. Port forwarding only forwards the port but not the GRE protocol (pptp passthrough)

Trying to use port forwarding


It may be that the company has the firewall on its server, or on its router, I would suggest talking to the IT specialist. And if you can get it to work use upper ports like 40000 and up to 65535 since those ports are less used and it is more secured.
