hi,
can anyone advise... search engine found solutions not helping me solve
this one?

I used to be able to Remote desktop connect to my PC but now I can not
and I don't know when it stopped working.

- XP Pro SP2

- Remote desktop is enabled.

- port 3389 is forwarded on my router Netgear DG834GT (I tried allowing
the "Any(All)" option also).

- netstat -a is showing 3389 as LISTENING.

- *PortQuery* (portqry.ex e) program is showing 3389 as ....
NOT LISTENING
portqry.exe -n (my external **.**.**.** IP here) -e 3389 -p TCP exits
with return code 0x00000001.

- I can ping my external IP address.

Success: I can see your service on 81.178.**.*** on port (3389)
Your ISP is not blocking port 3389


What can I try next?

I would double-check the router configuration, for example, not any/all and no DMZ.
