Specs: Windows XP Pro
Hey guys, I am running into an issue here with RDC. I have already enabled RDC on the machines I want to get into. I have 2 branches, 1 with 4 computers on a router and 1 with 3 computers behind a firewall/switch, both connect via DSL. I set up both the router at branch 1 and the switch at branch 2 to forward 3389 to the ip of the machine I want. I made sure the rules where in the right order. I got the external Ip of the DSL via whats my IP, and I type it in to RDC into them, and no dice.

It works by typing in local Ip ( however if I type in the external Ip from the same machine like (not real) It just hangs and then says it cant connect.

Its the same issue at both offices, and there over 50 miles apart. I need to get this working, its for my job, I am an IT guy but Im friggin stumped. Any help would be great.
