Connect To a host over a different network with a static external IP

Created: 19 Jan 2013 • Updated: 26 Mar 2013 | 3 comments

Ok, I have Symantec pcAnywhere And I Already Have My Static External IP Set Up On My Router, I Need To Be Able To Connect To My Host on A COMPLETELY DIFFERENT Network, Like They Don't Use The Same Router. I Guess What I Am Saying Is That I need to connect to my host through the internet. I Have A Netgear WNDR3400v2 Router On The Host End.

Please Help,

You can't have pcAnywhere soltuion with out altiris. Gateway is an old product and is not part of pcAnywhere solution. If you want to use the gateway it is a great product and you would then set up port forwarding from the out side network to the machine that you have installed pcanywhere gateway on. Here is how to install and configure the gateway. http://symantec.com/connect/articles/readyinstalli... Then you install host on all the machines inside the network that you want to connect to. Here is how to install and configure the hosts. http://symantec.com/connect/articles/installing-an... Then from the out side you would connect to the public IP of your location. The port forwarding would pass this trafic on 5631 to the gateway. Then the gatway would scan the network for any hosts that answere the broadcast request on port 5632. Then you from the outside will see a list of all the host available to the gateway. PS: www.portforward.com is a great resource on how to set up port forwarding on many different modems.
