I normally use pc anywhere to connect to my home pc when I am at work. I have used Remote Desktop to connect to a server on my home LAN so I figured I would just use it instead of pcanywhere. I forwarded port 3389 (actually I changed the default via registry and rebooted but for sake of simplicity I'll call it 3389). I have my main machine set up to allow connections. Since i only have one machine here right now (at home) I thought I would test it out by opening RD and typing in my IP address and trying to basically connect to itslef. MAke sense so far? I just wanted to test before I get to work tomorrow. Type in the IP and username/pass. It will not connect???? I know when I used it on my LAn it was as simple as that. Any ideas?
