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

It depends on the application you are using for remote access and what service(s) you need access to. Please provide more specifics about what you are intending to accomplish and also the firewall/router environment and we can provide additional assistance based on that information.

    If this is a company network, are you also in charge of the edge firewall? You will need to permit RDP (tcp port 3389) through the firewall. A better way of doing this would be to use an application like LogMeIn or ShowMyPC to gain access without having to open the firewall and map an IP address to the client system.

    I think Labnuke99 is right, try a remote access software. many are free or have free trials, and the better ones also provide multi-layered security systems to comply with your company's standards.
