Remote Desktop Connection over internet
by networknoob - 6/7/12 4:45 PM
Please help, I am having trouble connecting to my home computer from my work computer via the Windows Remote Desktop Connection app.
On my home computer (win 7 pro) I have:
1. Allowed incoming remote desktop connections
2. Verified that the firewall is open for RDC
3. Forwarded port 3389 on my router to my devices static IP
4.Verified that I am using the correct IP (Router has a dynamic IP but I called home and had my wife read the current IP # from whatismyip.com)
5. Setup an account on the home computer that is password protected
I am connecting from a win XP pro computer.
I receive 0% packet loss with reasonable time delay when pinging my home IP from the work computer.
I also asked a family member to try from a different location (using Vista Ultimate) with the same result
Error is that connection is never established and I am never prompted to logon to the home computer.
I can connect via RDC when on the home network.
I have spent hours scouring the internet for answers, please help!
