    I'm trying to open ports to my main pc, for remote access etc. My setup
    is adsl through a dlink 302g modem, ( subnet with a
    bimap rule pointing to my router. (wan ip, subnet,
    lan ip subnet then rules set on my router
    pointing to lan ip (my main pc) for opening ports. This
    does not currently work though, and I don't know what could be wrong.
    Any suggestions / places to look for info, would be good.

    bimap is probably wrong.

    You probably want port forwarding from your 302g to you internal router.

    first of all test getting the 302g to port forward the management service
    (port 23 or port 80 or something) to the router... then when
    that works get the to port forward that to your PC.

    Use an ethernet scanner to see if it gets to your PC or not.

    gah... in case anyones interested it was because my router was sending
    an internal IP to the dynamic dns server. Have had to run a dyndns
    client on the main pc. All is well.

    Nah, you are just pretending .

    No way the thing can send an internal Ip to the dynamic dns server.

    shows how much you know then aye? The routers 'wan ip' is an internal
    IP, so that the modem bimap rule can be pointed to it.
