I can RDP into my server OK from within the network but from outside it connects but  I just get a black screen.
My internal port is 3389 and my external port is 3398

Eventually it says "An internal error has occurred"

Thanks
Andrew

You can also verify the connectivity using TCPView which can be downloaded here:
