I have a family member who has a laptop. Now, I would like to know (step 1, step 2 etc..) how to connect to his laptop via RD.
He has a Sky broadband connection - which obviously means a default software XP firewall, and no hardware firewall.
Do I need to find out his pubic IP address. Open up my RD client - enter his IP address, then the port number for RD, so it would look like; 220.127.116.11:3389 ?
If you could list the steps involved that would be great, thanks.
PS: I know I can use something like LogmeIn - but I would really like to know how to connect via my local RD application.
PPS: I know he can send me a remote assistance invitation via MSN, Outlook etc.. But I would still like to know how to RD to a client who is outside my LAN.
