I've also edited the registry to reflect the new port for RDP, rebooted and still no luck. Can anyone please assist me with getting this connect established.
If you change the port number to loggin remotely then you need stick the port number at the end of the ip address.. Hi, I find all coments very interested but my case is totally different. I have two routers at home. One connects to Internet with my ISP, the other connects three computers and a camera wirelessly.
Ruben Hiciano, in order for you to accuratly view your internet IP, you need to set up the IP update function on the router connected to the modem.
That is the only way you can get that IP address. It splits my internet connection for me to my computers. I can also hook up a wireless router after the broadband router and it will work. I suggest you go to http: I had to bridge across FOUR routers to get from my work to my home. It took me longer to research the solution than it did to get it working.

Alternatively, you can try out Hamachi. I'm in the process of setting up 1 computer to use PCanywhere to access and local LAN, and a entirly different network at another office location.
Setting up the LAN was easy enough, as long as the host computers brodcasted the remote computer could access them without getting too much into IP settings. So just letting you guys know out there that PCanywhere is not any simpler then the methods described above.

Are we not able to get the correct IP behind the router? Remeber, Hamachi just makes the machines appear to all be on the same network, so anything you can do on the same network you can do via Hamachi, and in the same way as being on the same network. The only caveat is not so much about Hamachi as it is about the internet connection speed: Hi Leo, You information has been very helpful.
I've been trying to set up Remote Desktop, but did not know hot to connect to the remote computer which I had already setup to accept remote connections. Your information on configuring my router to forward port to the host machine was the missing link, and now I successfully made the remote connection!
Hello Leo, I am trying to connect to my home network via the remote desktop. My "main" computer only has XP home, but another one in my network has XP Pro and is connected to my network by a wireless card. Is there a way for me to connect to the machine that has XP pro on it?

I take my laptop, which is LogMeIn enabled, on vacation to Florida for a month, and initially I can successfully access my home computer from the laptop.
Everything is good and I'm happy. Must I leave my home computer running continuously for a month with no reboot? Can LogMeIn reboot my home computer remotely and re-establish its connection? Let's say my home computer suffers a glitch and hangs, or has a BSOD, or a power outage. However, if my home computer can't be rebooted and LogMeIn can't reconnect automatically, What are the options? Would there be a danger in leaving the home computer on but malfunctioning for a month?
Are my fears realistic? Am I missing something obvious? Frank D Utilities like LogMeIn require that software be running on your home computer, so if it's off or crashed, they simply cannot work. What I don't know ironically is if your machine reboots and requires that you login, will the LogMeIn software be running at that point so that you can, remotely. I would hope so, but I'm not sure. Leo's response to my question: My response to Leo: I suspected that LogMeIn wouldn't be able to handle all those "if's" I threw at it.
I appreciate your opinion. As far as I'm aware Hamachi on its own will not offer full remote control. Hamachi provides a secure, static, IP address. Hopefully, someone will put me right if I'm out of touch with reality! Remote Desktop, built into Windows Pro and better, works as well.

All you need to do is create a gmail account if you don't have one already.
Log into that account from home and leave it logged in. At work, you can log into that same account and gmail will tell you all the IPs that are logged into the account. You may want to create a gmail account just for this purpose if you don't want somebody reading your email at home. For dynamic ip-addresses problem, one can use the technique mentioned in this blog.
