You need to open port 3389 on your PC to allow access to the Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP). Remeber that only XP Pro and Vista Business/Ultimate have RDP. XP Home/Vista Home Basic/Premium only have the Remote Desktop Client (RDC).

NOTE: Zone Alarm Free/Basic does not have the ability to 'open' or 'forward' ports. Only Pro and above have this capability.

This might work, but it is too much of an extract for me to figure out what to do. I am looking for a recipe-like how-to based on my PCs config that I can follow because my networking knowledge at this stage of the game is still too basic. Thanks for the effort.
