Port Forwarding and RoadRunner

Eric Wentorf
I have a desktop box and laptop;

Desktop: Dell XPS 400 running XP MCE, RoadRunner Cable Modem, Hawking HWR54G Wireless Router

Laptop: IBM T43 running XP pro

Tight VNC installed on both. Running as a service on the desktop.
Desktop/router IP info;  Internet IP 65.29.178.226, mask 255.255.240.0, gateway 65.29.176.1, LAN IP 192.168.
1.254
When I hover over the TightVNC logo I see "TightVNC Server 192.168.1.1"
I went through the PortForwarding.com instructions for setting up port forwarding for the HWR54G and I have as follows:
Current Virtual Servers Table:      
Local IP Address     Protocol     Port Range     Description
192.168.1.254         TCP           5800              TightVNC    
192.168.1.254         TCP           5900              TightVNC    
192.168.1.254         TCP           5500              TightVNC

When both machines are connected to my router, the laptop can connect on 192.168.1.1.
When the laptop in on another router, it won't connect. From my researching, I believe this has to do with the RR IP and DHCP or DNS networking.

But, I can't seem to figure it out.

Has anyone who has dealt with this and can they point me in the right direction.

Many thanks in advance,

You have to "know" your public IP address.... www.whatismyipaddress.com usually works.
I have my network setup so that the router hands out DHCP or static.
Local address -> Port in VNC
192.168.1.100 -> port 5910/5810
192.168.1.101 -> port 5920/5820
192.168.1.103 -> port 5930/5830
 
you should be able to connect.
Also try to the local addresses... 192.168.1.100 ->192.168.1.103 and etc...

lots to check and double check... also make sure your firewall is allowing it!

I changed the local IP addresses in the port forwarding as follows:

Local IP Address     Protocol     Port Range     Description    
192.168.1.2             TCP           5500              TightVNC    
192.168.1.2             TCP           5800              TightVNC    
192.168.1.2             TCP           5900              TightVNC    

I was confusing the IP address terminology I guess.  I can now connect both from the LAN and the internet.

Thanks all for your advice and direction.

Be safe,
