      port forwarding issue

      Hi all,
      I have the sky Sagem router firmware 1.5. I'm trying to allow ftp access from the internet to one PC on the network which has a static IP address. I have set up an account with DYNDNS to track Skys dynamic address correctly, and have followed their instructions on port forwarding to the static IP of the PC. When I try to access this using my DYNDNS address I am taken to a screen asking for the username and password of the router, when this is entered I am taken to the router configuration pages. What am I doing wrong please!

      I need this to gain access to files on my home PC from work.

      thanks

      Ron

      Are you accessing via a ftp:// address of a http:// address?

      Re: port forwarding issue

      Greetings,

      I suspect your trying to access the machine via the DynDNS name from your machine, which is on the local LAN and will therefore always prompt you for the username/password for the router, to test it you need to be external i.e. not connected to your router via cable or wireless.

      You'll need to either get someone you know to test it, or connect to another machine via Terminal Service/Remote Desktop etc and then connect back to your DynDNS name.
