Specs: Windows XP
I have a client who I am trying to punch a hole in the routers port forwarding to allow RDP.
I have done this multiple times before on various Linksys/Cisco Routers and have never had this issue but saying that...

I have opened up TCP 3389 pointing to the internal static IP of the server, and its a no go. I cannot ping the Pub IP address either and a tracert times out after it leaves my regional NOC.

I have called the ISP they have logged into the SMC modem and verified that there is no Firewall or port blocking within that.

Any idea??

Have you checked, whether the port 3389 is open at the public ip address?

Is there a personal firewall or windows firewall running on any of the computers involved?

From where are you trying to connect to the server via RDP?
Hopefully not from withing the network, where the server you want to connect to, is located.

Any entries in the servers log, that might give you a hint?
I guess, the server has 2 network cards, right?
What's about the default gateway settings for the server?
On 2 network cards, only one network card should be configured a default gateway.

Small server deployment 1 NIC default gateway is the Linksys router. I am very certain the problem is within the router but I have fact defaulted it and upgraded the firmware same problem. I am going to try DDNS tomorrow not that I am to awful excited about that but it will be better than having this client call with user issues and me having to run over there.

DDNS?
So the router gets a dynamic IP address?

Ah ok, shouldn't be a problem.
Btw., I guess internal connection via RDP has already been tested, right?

Yeah internal work flawless. In fact I had my guys setup this box at the shop and I looked at it remotely the day it came in so it is something to do with this site.

Feel free to ping and test away 10.1.10.10

Port 80 is wide open as far as internet surfing is concerned.

10.1.10.10 in an internal address, so that I would never be able to ping this address from here.

Ok, thanks.
As I mentioned above.
Simply go to the website:

and you'll get the public ip shown in the browser.
