We just installed new pc's.  We used easy transfer to move XP settings to win7.  We run an RDP connection via on port 3999.  I am also running a forti-wifi 30b in transparent mode.  The rdp was working fine until we did the win 7 / new pc install.  Remote Desktop services is enabled on the new PC and nothing has changed on the firewall.

We also ran dcpromo on our win 2008r2 server to move from a workgroup to a domain.  we can rdp from within the network but not from the remote laptop.  I have already changed the registry settings on the local machine to reflect the change in the RDP port to 3999.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
