I am trying to use Remote Desktop. I have read and understand the procedure to forward port 3389 TCP to my local computer ip address.
I have deselected the box next to Block Anonymous Internet Requests.
I have tested Remote Desktop on my LAN and it works. I can't get it to work from outside the router.
I have turned off all firewall protection.
I have a feeling that I'm not entering the Application Name correctly in the port forwarding area. I ran into this dilema with vnc as well.
Here are my questions:
- When entering a name for an application what do you use? The name that you see in Windows Explorer or the name of the service that runs? (ie: WinVNC or UltraVNC or vnc.exe ... mstsc or RemoteDesktop or Remote Desktop
- I can't type out RemoteDesktop in the Applications area because it's too long. The field cuts off the final "p" .
