Log in from Work to Home - Remote Desktop Protocol 3389
Posted on 2009-04-07
I'm trying to connect from work to home using RDP.
start, run, mstsc, and type in my public ip address (ie... 126.96.36.199) and the error is "Remote Desktop Disconnected, This computer can't connect to the remote computer. Try connecting again...."
I run this command: nmap 188.8.131.52 -p3389
and it says: PORT STATE SERVICE
3389/TCP filtered ms-term-serv
HOME COMPUTER: (static ip 192.168.33.150)
netstat -an |find "3389"
and nothing comes up... nothing is listening, I go to services.msc and set Terminal Services to Automatic, Manual, do a Refresh, Disable it, but nothing seems to help. Turned Norton Internet Security firewall completely off. Windows Firewall is off too. When logging into my router I went to Advanced Settings, Forwarding, Virtual Servers, and enabled tcp/udp ports 3389.
anyone know what I'm doing wrong? this used to work perfectly. should my next step be to get terminal services port open, if so how do I do that?
