Re: 3CRWE554G72 - windows remote desktop & special applications
Each PC has to send a packet to the router on port 3389 in order to open the port for incoming use. Unfortunately, I suspect that the first packet received at the router is from the WAN side, and it doesn't know where to send the packet.
I think you may not be able to do it this way. Virtual server may be your only choice.
Remember, a PC sending a packet on this port Opens it from the wan side to the PC that sent the initial packet. The operation needs to initiate from your LAN, not your WAN, when using trigger ports.
No. If you're accessing any outgoing ports, most applications return on the same port, and know where to forward incoming packets.
This is part of the reason your trigger port setup isn't working, since the incoming port isn't usually the same as the outgoing trigger port, or it would already work without configuration.
