Help with WinRoute Pro please?
I don't have a home network, what I'd like to use it for is to set up 'away from home' internet access via dial-up to my cable connection. Winroute took the modem/nic combo on install without complaint.
Do I need to specify two scopes in winroute's DHCP server since I don't have a home network?
Do I have to go into win2kpro and create access for incoming connections under Network and Dial-up Connections, or will winroute handle that?
On the computer where I try to dial in, do I set connections in ie for a proxy server, with my static ip?
Sorry for all the questions, winroute pro doesn't have a good manual explaining this. And my german is virtually non-existant. The one site that touched on it had a lousy babelfish translation.
Thanks for any light you can shed.
Is your cable modem connected directly to the PC? Is there a firewall?
Yes, the cable modem is directly connected. I run ZA Pro. No router.
ZA is going to be the tallest hurdle.
I use a free little tool called Netmeeting for this. It has a feature called Remote Desktop Sharing. the ZA database may have info on which ports RDS uses.
You set up Netmeeting on your home PC to accept Remote Desktop requests with security/password and simply "call" your IP remotely with Netmeeting. Choose a good password with 8 characters or more and mixed case/numbers/letters.
It's cheap and it works.
Read all of these:
Ah, thank you, BB.
I read everything I can get my hands on. I'm one of those 'RTFM' believers.
Part of the reason I wanted to use winroute was to learn more about all of this. For example, I don't know what 'mask' means or why it's needed. But I will. I read and understand.
I'll read everything you pointed me to and thank you.
Can you give me anything more on winroute?

If you would rather have English support. Symantec has PC Anywhere - and has had it for a long time.

MS MCP, MCSE
Since they all use the same mechanisms to connect (UDP, TCP, Static and dynamic ports), the differences are primarily interface and security layers. If you want to learn about how they work, I would concentrate on PC Anywhere and Netmeeting because of the vast English knowledge bases in the public "domain". GoToMyPC is another.
After spending $149us for winroute, I don't just want to throw it away.
So I'll use this. Thanks, mate.
Does anyone know winroute pro? This is v4.2.1 TIA.
