Unanswered: urgent help required - remote access to brilliant issues
Im having trouble to connect to brilliant database from home using static ip. Now before i used router and enabled DMZ etc and all worked well. However the router is no longer being used and i am now using uc320w router at work. This has port forwarding but i can't find DMZ anywhere, so i still configured the port forwarding to the port i am sharing the database on (6413) and the server ip address 18.104.22.168. However when i put in my static ip and 6413 it doesn't work. This worked before using a linksys e2500 perfectly. does something else need to be configured on the UC320 or my server firewall?
well i set brilliant on port 6413. I open port in the firewall on windows server 2008 and set port forwarding through cisco uc320w and still not working. Funny though i set 3389 for remote desktop and it works good. Upon using the open port check tool it says 3389 is open and 6413 isnt. I tried all the way down to 6435 and nothing. Now if i delete the 3389 from either the windows firewall or the router it says port closed.
Why if i am doing the same thing for brilliant the port is still closed? Spent hours on this...its frustrating!!!
If you post how this was solved, it could help someone else with a similar "opportunity".
Makes sense. What happened is that when i shared my database through brilliant using port 6413 or any other port, that was not exact port opened through windows server 2008. Queer i know. I used a program to see open ports and the programs running on them and brilliant was showing as another port number to my surprise. So i forwarded this port through the router and it worked like a charm!
