hi..

i'm having P4, 256MB RAM, Win XP Pro SP2 on PC. I want to use radmin
2.1 for remote administrator.. i'm using dataone's 256kbps adsl
broadband connection, my adsl router is SmartAX MT882 ADSL Router from
Huawei from china..

i've tried to create remote administration connection between two pcs
one at distant place.. which can already use radmin 2.1 without any
problem.. but when it tries to connect with my pc it couldn't.

i've turned off windows firewall but still it doesn't.

I think my router is acting as a firewall & thats why i'm unable to
create connection.. it's have NAT feature to prevent direct connection
with my pc.. & i don't know how to configure its firewall to allow such
kinds of connections..

it would be wise if you help me in configuring my router's NAT &
firewall rules for enabling radmin.

thanks in advance
krunal

You should keep the machine out of the DMZ. You may have to config XP's FW
to open the required port too.

Remote Admin 2.1 uses port 4899 by default - if you expose 4899 directly
you will be hacked. I see this port scanned in our firewall logs quite
often on a daily basis.

Remote Admin 2.1 allows you to change the host port to anything you want
- for instance, you could set the listening port to 60000, which is a
port that not normal for RADMIN and not normally scanned.

As for what to do with your firewall:

If your ISP connection does NAT - meaning you have a Private IP address
like 192.168.x.y, then you need to FORWARD 4899 inbound to your
computers IP address.

If you are connected directly to the Internet from your computer and
your computer has a PUBLIC IP, then you only need to create PORT
EXCEPTION for 4899 in the Windows Firewall.

Keep in mind that 4899 is the default and you should not be using the
default port for this.

Read your NAT Router's manual?

Do you know, that it lasts ca. 30 seconds until an unprotected PC is
infected?

You have to find out. Please start by reading the documentation first.
