Terminal Serve Into Home Domain From Work

Does anyone know the ports and the procedure of setting up the ports on a home router so that I can Terminal Serve into my home domain from work?  I already have my ISP given IP address. I have a Netgear FVS318 if that helps.

Thanks Ahead of time

To get into your home domain from work you can open up TCP port 3389.  That is terminal Services/RDP if you use remote desktop.  If you setup a standard Windows VPN, then that will be TCP port 1723,

I do it all the time and it works great.

Thanks for the very quick response.. It worked first time around.. My VPN capabilities with this specific router are next but unless one has a Netgear FVS318 or similar, the settings in the router are a bit complex.  ...but I am always open

By the Way.. Thanks Steve!!!!!!!!!!

Sincerely
Steve
