good afternoon all

Has anyone actually managed to get the above to work? i recently changed ISP's to BT and have a dynamic dns account all set up and RDP did work fine through my old router/ISP. BT's helpline is actually false advertising - they are about as helpful as being poked in the eye with a sharp stick.

i have allowed the application through on the hub settings and as that didn't work i've also created a new service forwarding port 3389 (both TCP & UDP) to my machine but i'll be damned if the connection gets through.

i don't want to use VNC or anything web based (logmein etc) due to restrictions in various places i want to connect from.

Remote desktop IS enabled on my 7 ultimate x64 box.

if you need any more info please let me know

any ideas?
