I am trying to connect to my home computer from work, and I can not get
connected. I am running windows XP Professional on my home Computer and have
set up everything the way it told me, but when I use Remote Desktop it will
not let me connect. Is this possible? I am not on the same newtwork as work,
I am just trying to connect to my home computer to access it. What do I need
to do to be able to connect to my home computer. I have set up an incoming
connections. I can accces the host computer from my laptop while I am in the
home, but when I try to access it from another computer, like at my cousins,
when can not get connected. Please help me with this.

Have you verified port forwarding is configured correctly at home through
any firewall/NAT/router your PC is behind?

Have you verified your calling the correct public IP of the
firewall/NAT/router?
