MN700 & Remote Desktop.. HELP!

I just upgraded from an older DLink router (with the 3389 port forwarded to
my IP address on my home network) to the MN 700 router. I set up the port
forwarding to forward 3389 to my newly assigned IP address
(192.168.2.whatever...) and NO matter what I do, I can't connect from ANY
other computer to my home computer through the router! That's the only
problem, too... my home computer can get online just fine (otherwise writing
this would have been challenging)! It's not like lots of problems are
popping up.. just that. I've double and triple checked, and the ports are
assigned correctly... the IP address is assigned correctly... my home
computer's firewall is disabled, and EVERYTHING is as it should be, except
for the fact that it doesn't work. HELP!

More about : mn700 remote desktop

Remote Desktop works through the MN700 here.

Did you install Windows XP SP2 RC1? If you did, and you are using the
firewall, make sure that the exception for Remote Desktop is enabled.
Likewise if you are using another software firewall on your computer.

As for settings in the presistent port forward page
they should be...

Description: whatever you want (call it remote desktop if you want)
Inbound port: 3389-3389
Type: TCP
Private IP: the lan ip of the computer that you want to connect to
Private Port: 3389-3389

Hope this helps

Jason (And anyone else who may be able to help if you've experienced the
same problem),

I'm using XP Pro SP1 (not the release client). I do not have the firewall
enabled, nor do I have any other firewalls on my computer. Nothing about my
computer configuration has changed since I was using the older DLink router.
The persistent port forward page is exactly as it should be (as you have
typed). I can't figure out why it is that it no longer works. I've even
updated the firmware on the Microsoft router, and it still doesn't work.
If you can think of anything else I should try, please let me know. I'm
generally very capable with this sort of thing, but this is illuding me
somehow.

Thanx

-Drew

Are you trying to access remote desktop with your wan ip address from inside
your network?

If you are, it won't work until the next firmware update comes out when
loopback support should be implemented.

Jason,

That's exactly what the problem was! Thank you so much! I had no way of
testing the connection besides trying it from another home computer on my
network and attempting to connect to the router's wan ip. I just had a
friend try from his house and it works.. Thank you so much!

I'm glad you two guys had that discussion. I had the
exact same problem and have been scratching my head all
morning trying to figure out why I can't ping my WAN IP
address from inside my LAN and why I couldn't access the
FTP server I had set up. No loopback is no problem as
long as I can publish my FTP stuff as necessary.

Thanks again...
