How is my port 3389 being blocked?

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.work_remotely (More info?)

Hi,

I am trying to access my machine remotely. It lives behind a Netgear 4
-port switch and a Cisco 675 DSL router using Qwest DSL. Windows XP Pro
SP 2, Remote Desktop checked as an exception in Windows Firewall.

Netstat -a shows port 3389 is LISTENING. When I use www.canyouseeme.org
to check port 3389, it times out.

My pfirewall log shows:

005-03-16 17:45:14 OPEN TCP 10.0.0.2 8.4.112.109 2101 80 - - - - - - -
- -
2005-03-16 17:45:32 CLOSE TCP 10.0.0.2 8.4.112.109 2101 80 - - - - - -
- - -

How di I get Remote Desktop to access this machine?

Thanks,

Peter

    You'll need to port forward 3389 to the IP address of your XP machine in
    your router configuration.

    Thanks.

    Just to clarify: I would forward port 3389 on the Cisco 675 using the
    serial cable between the PC and the router? If successful, I should get
    a good response on www.canyouseeme.org?

    Thanks,

    Peter

    * If that's your only means of access, yes.

    * Yes, should work assuming your ISP isn't also blocking the port.
