I have installed Verity on 2 computers connected to the internet via one modem/router (one connects wirelessly and the other connects via a cable to the router/modem) and am having trouble checking both. When I type in my username and password I can only see one of the computers but not both. I think I have set things up properly in terms of port forwarding on the router.  Can any one help me with my situation?

Thanks,
Ben

Hi Ben,

Glad to know I’m not alone in this. It took me about 12 hrs to figure this out. No matter what was tried it always came back to port forwarding.
As it turns out each and every computer that Verity is installed on MUST have its own port forwarding address.
You have to know each computer address in your system (router) to assign a port forwarding address.
Add custom TCP/UPD Port Forwarding address in router, give each port a unique name (computer name), etc.
I used Verity + computer initials. VerityKit (kitchen) port 130, VerityLR (Living Room) port 131, etc.                                    
1st computer, use the standard 130 port,
2nd computer, use 131 port,
3rd computer, use 132 port and so on.
After assigning port in router, choose correct port for each computer and let Verity Wizard open port in your firewall.
Know you got it right when wizard message goes Green.

You can use the same email for all Verity installations, but you MUST have an individual port for each and it can ONLY be used ONCE.
Run a test login for each computer, message may not arrive until after 12am, open verity email, depending on how your email views headers.
Examples; (hotmail) View Message Source, (gmail) Show Original , (yahoo) View Full Header, etc. and you should be able to see which computer it came from in the “header”.
