Subject Re: [ib-support] Unable to connect over DSL
Author William L. Thomson Jr.
Something is blocking access, so what OS is the server running? Do you
have port 3050 correctly configured on the client machine?

Can you telnet to port 3050 on the remote machine?

Can the lan clients see the outside world via the server, or is that not
one of it's uses. Shouldn't really matter, except for forwarding. Each
side should be able to talk to the server, lan or remote.

Sounds very strange.
