remote desktop and linksys routers


R

roger678

I have the same setup I and was wondering if anyone could
tell me how you setup the Linksys Router, did you have to
do a prot trigger??

Or
just the forwarding of the port? I have my linksys setup
for the 3389 port in forwarding and it will NOT connect at
all. I have also enabled remote desktop and told it what
user's are allowed, since it is a home system I only have
one user. I can use my PC at home to connect to my PC at
work, (both are XP Pro) but I can not reverse it for the
life of me. I want to be able to access my HOME,(host) PC
from my work PC, (client) and get files that I might need.

Any thoughts????
