Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Private IP addresses are not routable on the public internet but with the use of NAT (network address translation) you can appear to be originating from a public address and therefore can reach other public destinations.

    Yes I agree with Mattmatter by appling NAT you can use internet in your private IP. So you can communicate with public network via remote desktop. but for your privare ip you cann't RDP by your public ip.

    If you are looking to connect with remote desktop to a system on a private network from a public IP address, there are several possibilities. If it is a single desktop create a port map assignment to the specific desktop on the router, add a remote desktop gateway system/service to a compter on the private network or you can use some product like LogMeIn which can hop a NAT translation. Note, if it is only two or three systems, you can mod the listening port for the systems so each uses a unipue port and port map through the router for each. You will need to konw which port each is listening on. If your router is advanced enough, you can do all this without changing the system port at which point you only need to konw the port on the router which points to which system.
