    i have ports 5631 (tcp) and 5632 (udp) forwarded to the machine that pcanywhere is on but its not connecting. the ports are open because i can telnet to those ports just fine. any ideas?

    Is there a firewall between you? Say on the computer you are trying to connect to.

    Not too familiar with PC Anywhere so I may be off.

    At the computer you want to connect to, see if you can connect using PC Anywhere to localhost. That's to see if it's properly running.

    If there's another computer on the network, then use that to connect to your computer. That way you can tell if it's a firewall issue or not.

    just the router based firewall.

    yes, i can connect to the host computer if i tell the remote computer to connect to 192.168.x.x (the local ip). if i try the real ip (24.174.88.x), it won't detect the host computer. it does detect someone elses computer who is running pcanywhere who has the same first few digits as my ip (24.174.88.x with the x being the only digit different). i can connect to my company's computer just fine. :dunno:

    If you can bypass the router and connect the host computer to the public IP and it works, this has nothing to do with PCAnywhere and everything to do with port forwarding and the like. Once you've eliminated the program from being the problem, you can then focus in on getting the router's firmware upgraded, examining in more detail the port forwarding portion of it.

    ok, i got it working by resetting the router and getting a new IP in the process. the only problem now is that it disconnects me abnormally when i'm in a session. i think this is also router related but what could be the cause since the ports are obviously open?

    I doubt it - mine does it too. As does Terminal Services.

    well its kinda weird because i don't have this problem when i connect to my company's computers.

    also, i noticed it takes a lot longer to connect to this machine than it does on the company computers. it just sits there at the "waiting for connection" screen for about 10 seconds compared to the 2 seconds it takes for any other machine i try and connect to.

    Is it multi-homed?
