Help with Remote Desktop Connection

Hi
I would be grateful for some help in setting up internet based remote
connection

Hi
I have a large Windows 7 ultimate desktop whose media I want to share
locally and remotely with other machines on my network
I can stream media over my network to my other windows 7 clients and can
remotely log on to the desktop from these clients via my home network.

I can also remotely log on to other network machines using these clients
because I succeeded in connecting to someone else's kit accidentally when I
inadvertently entered the wrong IP address for my desktop

I have opened port 3389 for TCP, cleared all the Microsoft firewall issues
and connected my Microsoft ID to a provider - Windows Live

I have tried to log on to the desk top across the internet and used several
software products to identify my network address with my cable provider NTL.
All returned the same answer regardless of which machine on my network I
used. I suspect this address is the one assigned to my router which uses
DHCP. I can successfully ping this address

When I attempt to log on to the desktop using this address I am told that
remote access is not enabled which is obviously not true of the desktop but
is true of the router. Is there some trick I missing in the IP address which
will find the actual desktop or should I be looking at other issues

Yours

Roger Stenson

Did you remember to configure your router to forward TCP port 3389 to
the IP address of your desktop computer?
