Hey rFire2k,

The first place you need to look would be your DSL modem/router. What is the make/model of the router you have for your DSL connection? You would need to enable port forwarding or what is refered to as VC on some routers.

It sounds to me like the first computer IS the router. He simply has a DSL Modem (no router). If that is the case, then you may want to check the firewall settings on the first computer.

So from what I understand from your question, you would like to sit at say school, and be able to PC Anywhere into your "my computer", going through the first computer that is being used as a router?? Does the first computer serve any other purpose other than being a router? What OS is on the first computer?

DSL doesn't use a modem (in the true sense), most ISPs provide you with an ADSL modem, which functions as a router to connect to their network.

DSL doesn't use a modem. (neither does cable for that matter) People have gotten used to calling the connection devices for broadband "modems" and the term has stuck for the sake of simplicity. The ISP provides you with a router to connect to their network. What is the make model of DSL router you got from your ISP?

ADSL is one of the xDSL technologies. It is also the ONLY one that is used in the home user market. The other forms (HDSL, SDSL) require dedicated connection lines so you are not able to share the line with other telephone equipment. Which is the major marketing point for DSL broadband connection to the home user market. You can be online and user the phone at the same time.......

As far as what model Nokia you have you can check your ISP's trobleshooting page to see if they list the model(s) they use. Once you have this information, you can figure out the default configuration address. For example Westell, Linksys and I beleive Netgear too, typically uses 192.168.1.1 to get to the router configuration.

Let me know what you find out...
