    Default How to set up remote desktop connection from work to home PC?

    I want to be able to access my home PC from work using Remote Desktop Connection (both work and home PCs run Windows XP Professional SP2). Other than the obvious (enabling RDC on my home PC) what else would I need to do to connect to my home PC? The home PC uses a software firewall (via Trend Micro's PC-Cillin software; WinXP's built-in firewall is disabled) and the D-Link DSL-302g router it is connected to uses NAT rules. The router has a fixed IP address assigned by my ISP and the home PC is assigned a local IP address of 10.x.x.x by the router. What rules do I need to set up?

    UltraVNC like Speedy sugested. You then need to forward some ports to the local IP of the computer you want to connect to, I think the ports to forward are 5500, 5800, 5900.
    Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired.

    Go for some remote access software like RemotePC or IímInTouch.
    RemotePC is free from Firewalls, Routers and IP Issues.

    The first step is to ask your works IT guy what they think about you remotely accessing your home computer from work. They may not approve.
