Remote access to PC from the Internet over a DSL connection!

Hello! I have a PC on the local LAN which is hooked to the Internet over a DSL Modem (Speedstream 4100) connection using a 2620 Router with 12.3 IOS. A remote vendor wants to access this PC using "Port forwarding" to Port 3389. He was able to do this using a Linksys Router instead of a 2620.

There are no leased public IP addresses on this connection. The vendor was able to use some DDNS to accomplish this successfully. Now, the Linksys Router has been replaced with 2620 and I need help configuring this.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

ip nat inside source static tcp 3389 interface fastethernet0 3389

If the IP address for FA0 is dynamic, you can use DDNS as mentioned (requires additional configuration), or simply look it up in the router and communicate verbally to the vendor.

Hope this helps, please rate post if it does!
