Remote Web Desktop Problems - Router Probs?

Guest

I have installed IIS and remote desktop from original Windows XP Media center
disk. I changed the default port in IIS to 2121 and opened this port in the
Windows Firewall (no 3rd party firewalls used).
On my Belkin router I went to the Virtual Server page and entered this:
Inbound port 2121 TCP ---- Private IP Private Port 3389
Inbound port 2121 UDP ---- Private IP Private Port 3389
Inbound port 3389 TCP ---- Private IP Private Port 3389
Inbound Port 3389 UDP ---- Private IP Private Port 3389

Created a static IP address in control panel equal to my Private IP
Found public IP through whatismyip.com.

When I connect using my Private IP with port 2121 from another home computer
everything works great. When I go to work and try to connect with either
Private IP or Public IP I get page not found error. I enter like this:
http://public IP:2121/tsweb or http://private IP:2121/tsweb

What am I missing? Thanks!

First you do *NOT* need the UDP ports opened. Close them...

Second the IIS port should be redirected to private TCP Port 2121 through
the router not TCP Port 3389.

Inbound port 2121 TCP ---- Private IP Private TCP Port 2121
Inbound port 3389 TCP ---- Private IP Private TCP Port 3389

Third make sure your testing through the router from a remote location if
your using the public IP address. Its generally not a valid test to use the
public IP from another local PC on the same LAN.

I have the problems you pointed out (thanks) but I still get a page cannot be
displayed error. I am at work now and typed in http://publicIP:2121/tsweb
Any other thoughts. I have opened the ports in Windows firewall and IIS I
have port 2121 assigned.
I went to a port scanning website and it said that port 2121 is open and was
detected.
Thanks

Well, its possible your office/work network admins are blocking most
everything outbound. I suggest you work with them on this issue since its
possible connecting to your home PC (an untrusted system) from your work PC
(a trusted system) may violate company policies.

Beyond that you might test from a family or friends house. If it works there
then its most certainly an issue with outbound traffic from your work LAN.
