Unable to RDP

So I have a iMac which I have it running boot camp with windows 7 pro.
1- give it a static IP 192.168.1.150
2- went into the regedit and changed the RDP Port to 3395
3-went into the router and did a port forwarding from 3395 to 3395 IP 192.168.1.150
4- activated remote desktop.

I can ping the iMac running Windows 7Pro using Boot Camp, but I can't remote into it.

Do I need to enable something on the mac side? if so what would it be, if not what I'm I missing???

Thanks...

Did you check to make sure Windows firewall is allowing RDP? You'll have to make sure windows firewall has 3395 open for RDP and not the default 3389.

Have you tried restarting your router after you entered the port forward?

Have you restarted the computer or restarted the terminal services service after making the registry change for the port?

Remember it's running on an iMac.
I think I may have to enable so on the iMac, but if that is te case I don't know what it would be.
Any other ideas???

When connecting to the computer with an RDP client are you typing in 192.168.1.150:3395 ??

An iMac running windows is just anther computer running windows. You did install the boot camp drivers right? And you can see network shares and such from the iMac?

yes, I can ping the iMac from any other workstation.
When you asked if I installed the boot camp drivers, what exactly do you mean?
and how would I do that?

So on the iMac, from the Mac side, you run the boot camp assistant, pop in the windows DVD, reboot and install windows. Now that you are booted into windows you either put the osx install cd in or download from apple the little boot camp app and all the drivers. I shows up in the task bar like the VMware tools. This is essential for the network and video and such to have the right drivers and work correctly.

If you type " netstat -a " in the command line, do you see port 3395 in the list of listening connections?

This will tell you if the computer is listening on that port or not.  You could try connecting to it using the standard port to see if your change of port somehow didn't work...
