Can someone tell me what interface I need to add an ACL to allow an RDP connection from my work desktop to my home PC.  We use an ASA as our edge firewall, and we are already using NAT.   My desktop  at work is in our trusted zone.  I have found  a lot of configs to allow RDP in through the firewall from outside, but I want to go the other way.

    To my knowledge, outbound ports aren't typically blocked by default. Do you have policies locking down outbound traffic? Do you have a syslog server that is showing the ASA is blocking the traffic?

    it was my firewall at home that was blocking the traffic.
