Setting up External Remote Desktop Connection

I need help setting up remote desktop connection between two separate locations. The first location has server 2003, the PC we want to connect to.

This is the information I have for the server PC (being connected to)

- Remote desktop is enabled.
- Remote desktop allows the proper users.
- The Router at the server location has ports 3389 Open for 'both'.
- The external IP is known as well as I see a remote port when I find my external IP as 9734 (in case that's relevant).
- The internet is through a Comcast business class modem.
- The router is an ASUS RT-N66U.


This is the information I have about the connecting PC (computer remoting into the server)

- RDP is open and the external IP address XX.XX.XX.XX:3389 is placed in the computer connecting spot.
- Connecting computer is a Windows 7 machine.
- I receive no connection.
- The internet is through a Comcast business class modem.
- The router is an ASUS RT-N66U.

Any advice, anything I might be missing? Thanks in advance.

Yes sorry forgot to add that part. The port is set to go directly to the server's local address.
i'd recommend disabling your firewall and give it a try just to eliminate that as a problem
Can you try inside your network with another pc?, if its works the problem is the router configuration, if not the server configuration is wrong
