Trying to open port 3389 in my firewall. Set for UDP and TCP but the tester program still says that they are closed. I have disabled windows firewall. Still no luck.


Make sure you are doing this for the right ip address. The ip address should be your local computer's ip address and will probably look like 192.168.1.x . To get to this go into your network control panel and click on your connection and view the details to get this information. Remember that every time your router resets this ip could change. I would suggest setting a static ip in either the router or on your computer in question. To set up a static IP for windows xp: http://portforward.com/networking/static-xp.htm. For windows Vista:http://portforward.com/networking/static-vista.htm. For windows 7: http://portforward.com/networking/static-win7.htm.

How to set up a static IP address in Windows Vista


Static IP addresses are often used for computers that host specific services, or for computers on small, manually managed networks. To set up a static IPv4 address on a Windows Vista computer, first find an IP address that is not currently in use and is outside the DHCP assignable range (if applicable). Then follow either of the procedures below.

From the taskbar:

1. Right click on the network connection icon in the system notification tray.
2. Select Network and Sharing Center.
3. Under Tasks, select Manage network connections.
4. Right click on the network connection that you want to set up the IP address for (Local Area Connection, Wireless Network Connection, etc.)
5. Select Properties.
6. If the User Account Control window pops up, select Continue.
7. Click on Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4).
8. In the Properties window, click the circle next to Use the following IP address.
9. Enter the IP address that you want to assign to the computer.
10. Enter the subnet mask and default gateway. (For small or home networks, these will typically be 255.255.255.0 and 192.168.1.1, respectively.)
11. Enter the IP address of the DNS server next to Preferred DNS server.
12. If you have an alternate DNS server, enter that IP address as well.
13. Click OK to save the changes.

From the Start menu:

1. Click the Vista orb.
2. Right click on Network.
3. Follow the procedure above from step #3.

Reserving an IP address under DHCP is different from setting up a static IP address. To reserve an IP address, log into your router's configuration utility and look for a heading such as DHCP or IP Address Distribution. You will probably need either the computer's Windows name or its MAC address to reserve an IP address for it.

How to determine what your computers IP address is


How to determine what your computers local IP address is

Applies to Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7

1. Click Start - Run

2. Next enter "CMD" and click OK

9934d76.png
3. Next at the command prompt type "ipconfig" and press enter

At this point all your active connections will list on the screen. Note you may need to scroll back up the window to get to the connection info you need. Also keep in mine if you are connected to your wired or wireless connection because both might have an IP address assigned but you can only be actively connected to one at a time not both.

4. Look under the Local Area Connection if connected to your network via a wired connection or Wireless Network Connection if connecting via a wreless connection.

Once under the right connection you will want to look for the line that shows "IP Address" this will have what the computers current IP Address is. Note if you have Windows Vista or Windows 7 it will be listed as "IPv4 Address". Also while you are here take note to what the "Default Gateway" is because if you are trying to network computers together you want to make sure they are connecting to the right network.

Here is an example of what IPCONFIG looks like on a computer running Windows 7

How come the http://192.168.123.254 address isnt working?



Find your computer's IP address : Windows 7, Vista, and XP, using the command prompt

  1. Click Start, and then select All Programs. Note: If this doesn't match what you see, refer to About navigation settings in Windows.
  2. Click Accessories, and then Command Prompt.

  3. At the command prompt, enter: ipconfig The IP address (or IPv4 address, if you are using Windows 7 or Vista) will be a series of numbers following the pattern xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (i.e., 156.56.27.32).
Note: If you are using PPP with a modem at home, your IP address will change each time you log in.
Windows 7, without using the command prompt
  1. In the system tray, click the network connection icon and select Open Network and Sharing Center.

  2. To view the IP address of a wired connection, click Local Area Connection. To view the IP address of a wireless adapter, click Wireless Network Connection (Network Name).
  3. Click Details... . Your IP address will appear next to "IPv4 Address".
Windows Vista, without using the command prompt
  1. From the Start menu, right-click Network, and then select Properties. This opens the Network and Sharing Center.

  2. To view the IP address of a wired connection, click View Status to the right of Local Area Connection. To view the IP address of a wireless adapter, click View Status to the right of Wireless Network Connection.

  2. To view the IP address of a wired connection, double-click Local Area Connection. To view the IP address of a wireless adapter, double-click Wireless Network Connection.
  3. Click the Support tab, and then click Details... . The window that appears will display the IP address.
Your IP address has to be in the 192.168.123.xxx range



The router must be configured to match your

Internet service. If you do not know your

Internet connection configuration, please

contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP).

By default, the router is pre-configured with

these settings:

• Automatically set IP addresses for

computers on your LAN (connected to the

router's ports 1-4). The router acts as a

server for dynamic host configuration

protocol (DHCP) and assigns IP addresses

in the range 192.168.123.100 through

192.168.123.199

• The default LAN IP address for the router is

192.168.123.254 with a subnet mask of

255.255.255.0

• The Internet service connected to the
router's WAN port uses a dynamic IP

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response. Happy Holidays!

Thanks, Joe

Ip address in invalid on windows vista


All we need to do is to reset the router for about a minute, if we are still getting invalid IP which is 169.x.x.x then we need to temporarily assign an ip address on the computer.

How to assign IP address:
Windows XP
Step 1: Click Start, then Control Panel.
Step 2: When the Control Panel window opens, double-click Network Connections.
Step 3: Right-click Local Area Connection, then click Properties.
Step 4: When the Local Area Connection Properties window appears, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) then Properties.
Step 5: Change the option from Obtain an IP address automatically to Use the following IP address and enter the following:

Make sure the IP Address you'll be assigning the computer has the same first three numbers as the Default Gateway and the last number can be any number between 2 and 99. In this example, our Default Gateway is 192.168.1.1, so the IP address that should be used must start with 192.168.1. In this example, the IP address that we'll assign is 192.168.1.50.
  • IP: "192.168.1.50"
  • Subnet Mask: "255.255.255.0"
  • Default Gateway: "192.168.1.1"
After assign static IP then click OK.

Step 6: If we are not getting any response from the router(like pinging the ip address of the router) then possible product is defective.

My WRT54G wireless router does not connect to our laptops. The (4) wired ports work fine. What am I doing wrong?


Configuring a wired computer to get an IP address automatically will enable it to get an IP address from a DHCP server. Instead of manually entering the IP settings which will consume much time, performing this procedure will ensure that the computer will get the correct TCP/IP settings.
Configuring a computer to get an IP address automatically is useful when:
  • Connecting a computer to a network with a DHCP server. Ensuring that the computer is getting the correct TCP/IP settings.
To configure a computer to automatically get an IP address, you have to check the TCP/IP properties of the Ethernet Adapter installed on the computer. Follow the steps below for instructions.
NOTE: Make sure the wired computer is properly connected to a network with a DHCP server.
Checking if the Computer is Set to DHCP
NOTE: The instructions provided below only apply to Windows 98, ME, XP and Mac operating systems. If you are using Windows Vista, click here for instructions. For Windows 7 users, click here for instructions.

Your Printer's IP Address depends on the IP Address of your computer if it's connected to your computer via USB cable. So to check on the IP Address of your computer.

Windows XP
- click start
- click run
- type cmd
- type ipconfig on the black screen and press enter
- look for the ip address, if you see it the numbers beside it is the ip address

Windows Vista
- click pearl button (start)
- click start search box

If you are using CAT5 on the printer, the IP Address is on the setup menu of the printer. If you have the manual of the printer, it'll help you find it or you could provide us the Brand and model of your printer so we could look it out for you.

IoGEAR printserver GPSU21 with VISTA


Yes, the GPSU21 is tested to work with Vista 32 and 64-bit Operating System. The things you need to do is listed below:

1. There's no need for you to install the CD that came with it, if the MFP Utility is already installed in another computer.

2. Get the IP Address of the GPSU21 from the computer that has the MFP Utility installed.

- Open the MFP Utility > locate TCP/IP at the lower portion of this window and click the plus (+) sign. > get the IP Address.

3. After getting the IP Address of it, go to your Windows Vista computer and ping the IP Address (just to make sure that Vista is seeing the Print Server).

- To ping, follow the steps below:
-
- Click the start menu and open the MS DOS Command Promt.
- On the black screen, type this "ping (type the IP Address of the print server): just like this
- C:WINDOWS\Desktop\Scott>ping 192.168.x.x and then hit enter.

4. Once you get ping statistics 4 packet sent; 0% loss. Then the Print Serve is communicating with Vista.

5. On you Windows Vista computer, make sure that the printer is working when directly connected to it. Because there could be a possibility that the printer driver is not properly installed that's why the server is not working.

6. On Vista, go to the Control Panel > Printers > Locate the printer icon (the one that is set as you default printer)

7. Right-click on the printer icon and then select properties > go to Ports tab.

8. Click on Add port button > select Standard TCP/IP > click on "New Port" (beside Cancel)

9. Hit next > type the IP Address of the print server. > Next

10. Click on Custom > Settings button

11. For Protocol: select LPR

12. For the Queue Name: type L1 > Click on OK > Finish.

13. Then under the printer properties, you will see the Standard TCP/IP is selected

14. Hit Apply so that the printer name would appear right next to that port > OK

15. Try printing a test page.

NOTE: After following the steps, you should be able to print using your Vista computer. I configured this print server with Vista several times and it does work with Vista.
