Hi,

I have 2 pc's (both XP home), they are networked using a dlink 504 generation II. There are no problems using the internet with either, and they both "see" each other and can transfer files.

My Problem is I am trying to set up port forwarding.

I can set up the dlink for one pc (IP is 192.168.0.2) with the needed info for TCP and UDP, but I cant get dlink to accept settings for the other PC (IP 192.168.0.3) to have the same settings.

I need both PC's to use the same piece of software so I need to configure the dlink with the same info for both machines? but I get a "duplication error". even though the port setting will be the same, they are for different IP's.. so why the duplication??

Any more info you need... ask and I'll do my best to get it!!!

Thanks..

You can't forward a port to more than one machine, think about it. :) When the unsolicited port access request comes in, how does the router know which machine to route it to?

Thanks johnwill for the response...

Yes I see where you are coming from and why it wont work.

So, is there another way where I can have both machines listen on the same ports?

Thanks again
