Hello! Trying to set up remote desktop to one of my machines, and I'm pulling my hair out!
I have a home network behind a Linksys WRT110 router which is behind the Comcast-provided Motorola SVB5220 modem. Here's what I've done to date:
My question: does the Motorola SVB5220 include a firewall of its own? If so, how can I access it in order to configure it? Or do I need to have Comcast place the modem in "bridge" mode or some such to let my router do the job?
If no to the above, where, if you can tell from what I've provided, have I gone wrong? No document I can find concerning ports Comcast intentionally blocks lists any of the ports I've configured to forward - which, notably, all fail when I go to canyouseeme.org.
Thanks for any insight you can provide!
Solved! Go to Solution.

No, there is no firewall per se in the SBV5220. Ports CAN be blocked by Comcast using the boot configuration file when the modem is initialized, this is how port 25 blocks are usually handled. But it's not standard practice to block 3389 and I suspect this is NOT your problem.
Things to try:
