    That would have gotten me too.

    To date myself, I ran a FidoNet BBS a long, long time ago. All the mail that I generated was sent to the upstream node's junk folder. The upstream operator was getting tired of having to pick my mail out of the spam every day. I worked for over a month on the setup before I finally managed to see that 3485 and 3458 were not the same number.

    Virus software disabled - no connect.
    I do get a blink on the Click's Link/Activity light.
    If I change the port from 5555 to something else, I don't get a blink.
    I guess that this confirms that the 5555 port is being 'forwarded' to the CLICK 25425.

    If not already connected, can the CLICK refuse a connection?



    I got connected!
    Even though the screenshot posted (post #3) earlier plainly shows the Internal port was 25425, I looked through the router again (and again) I found the port was 25245.
    FatFinger is on the loose.
    Thanks again to those who participated.

    Post 7.
    I did try with firewall disabled -- Public/Private separately and together.

    Last thought is that Windows Firewall or other security software might be blocking the port.

    I really appreciate the effort of all who responded. Thank you.
    This is NOT a production task, just trying to put another tool in the toolbox.
    I hope to move to the VPN demo next.

    Shouldn't be. I'll look over the screenshots again to see if there is anything else that I missed.

    I tried changing the gateway on the laptop. No luck.
    In the video, the laptop's gateway is 0.0.0.0 - as seen from 06:25 onwards.
    When I get the other laptop back to the bench, I will try 0.0.0.0.......

    I am not connecting to any other network devices.
    I am only using the two laptops, the router and the CLICK.
    No internet connection. Is this a problem?

    There's your issue. Your laptop gateway is pointed at 192.168.7.253 instead of 192.168.7.1.

    Gateways have to point at the device that is routing traffic both ways. I am guessing that you actually have another router connected to this same network that is routing traffic to the internet and that is where the 192.168.7.253 address is coming from.

    I cannot Wireshark anytime soon.
    Tested changing the port number from 5555 to 25425 - still no connection.
    Will see if my IT guy has another router - preferably the same E1000 as in demo.
    I'll also try to get him involved.
    I will post if I make progress..

    Thank you for your input.

    Can you wireshark on the inside of the router (from the router to the CLICK PLC)?

    I would, as a test, change the external port on the router setup to make it the same as the inside: 25425.

    Try to isolate whether the problem is a router issue or not. Routers are quirky on the best of days...

    No, only the laptop WIRED ethernet

    n/a

    I did disable the silly USB Dock ethernet and the wireless connection. Still cannot connect to the CLick thru the router.

    Will check in the morning!
    [EDIT] It is.

    I know that I have done this.

    Thanks Do-More PE!

    [EDIT] Still errors out --- PTC-007 - cannot connect
    Have attempted this with firewall disabled - no connection.
