    Does anyone know how you would connect to a host using pcAnywhere if the host is a client on a server based network that is using Internet Connection Sharing? Since the LAN uses ICS, it is also using NAT so I'm not sure how I would connect to a client on the inside of that network. Thanks for any help.

    Lets see if I understand you correctly.

    You want to connect to a computer that is a client on a network that you are not connected to, correct?

    Does that network you're trying to get to the client through have a firewall up? If so, do you have access to that firewall? If you do check your firewall manual for forwarding ports and do just that to the computer you want to connect to.

    I forget what port PCAnywhere uses but lets say it's 4890. You would forward all incoming request on port 4890 to the IP Address of the computer you want to connect to (such as: 192.168.1.101, 192.168.1.1,.....)


    I hope this helps.

    Set up the host PC as the PCAnywhere gateway.

    Mithrilhall,

    You are right. I will be outside the LAN trying to get past a Windows 2000 server that is using NAT due to its Internet Connection Sharing being enabled. The host is on the other side of this server. Do you know how I would forward all incoming requests from a certain port to the host IP address on a Windows 2000 server? Thanks for your help.
