Hi Experts. I'm currently trying to get remote desktop working on a windows 2000 server that has service pack 4 installed. Currently on the network i can remote desktop to all computers including the server but when i try to do it from home i get :
     "Remote desktop disconnected
      The Client could not connect to the remote computer.
      Remote connections might not be enabled or the computer might be too busy to accept new connections.
      It is possible that network problems are preventing  your connection.
      Please try again....."
The win 2000 server is connected to a cisco 837 router that doesn't block any requests just sends them all to the server. I've checked services in component services and all router services are running but i haven't changed any of them from their default settings. Any ideas?
