Disable Block WAN

Make sure that the Block WAN/Anonymous request is also disabled on the router.

Where do I find this option.

    The Block/WAN was not checked so it was not causing the problem. I just see a Black screen when I am connecting to the host computer which is behind the router.



    On the Host computer, the PC Anywhere program is Waiting For Connection, so the host computer is not seeing the remote.

  • cbislander Jul 04, 2008

    Yes as per the instructions that I found.



    Still don't know what I am missing. The computer is I am trying to connect to is 200 km away. I can connect to it via the phone line, but before the router was added I could connect to the computer without a problem.

    Have you tried opening the ports on the router for your pc anywhere?

  • Jeffrey Pedimonte
    Jeffrey Pedimonte Jul 06, 2008

    This is because the router has a builtin firewall on it. For applications like pc anywhere port forwarding or port trigerring should be done on the router so that the router's firewall will allow the PC Anywhere software to freely go in and out through the router's firewall.



    In your case you will need to enable port forwarding. I have here a link on how to setup port forwarding on your router. click here.



    I hope this one helps.

How do i enable icmp on linksys E1200 router?


You can't "open" ICMP. Necessary ICMP messages are automatically forwarded.

All you can do in the router is to "Filter Anonymous Internet Requests". If you set this option the router won't answer to pings. If you disable this option the router will answer to pings.

But again: this is the router responding. It has nothing to do with port forwardings.

CyberXLink CXL-EBR-W router - can't open ports 5631/5632 for pcAnywhere


Hi dave, I'm not familiar with that router at all and I didn't find any doc's online for it so I'm running blind here but... If the router has it make sure "Block WAN Request" is disabled or you won't get anywhere. Also I don't know if the print server has anything to do with your problem. Have you tried mapping those ports directly to the host in the router? TCP PCanywhere port 5631 Inbound 192.168.1.[host IP] port 5631 UDP PCanywhere port 5632 Inbound 192.168.1.[host IP] port 5632 I'm also assuming that you're using a static IP on the host. You don't want to use a dynamic IP. Hope this helps. Let me know how you make out, Duder
