I have Apple Remote Desktop installed on two computer. They were always able to connect, but i recently had to connect one computer to a linksys router. Since then I have been unsucessful in using Apple Remote Desktop.

I went to 'port fowarding' and entered the two port numbers that should make ARD work. Those numbers are 5900 and 3283. I selected to 'enable' those ports on the computer 192.xxx.xx.xx (the computer which i am trying to connect to).

What am i doing wrong. Anyone have experience with a linksys router?

I am new to "router" use, so I can't be of help at this time. However, if nobody can solve your problem here, maybe these folks can:

Did you forward both TCP and UDP? ARD uses UDP.

Sounds more like a firewall issue that forwarding. Make sure the firewalls on both machines and the Linksys are disabled.
