Remote desktop issue

I am trying to remote desktop from school to my home server without going through a third party company like noip, dyndns, himatchi, teamviewer, etc. I have 1 public IP issued to me from my ISP. This IP address is not static, although it has not changed for almost a year now. On my 2621 router, I have NAT set up to overload on the single public ip. All communication from hosts inside my house to the net are great. I tried to set up a static nat mapping to one of my servers on the inside. Anything coming to my router's outside interface from any ip with a destination port of 3389 will get sent to (my server). This should work, however when debugging nat, the packet sent from the college network has a different destination port because the college is running nat internally. When leaving the pc I'm using at school, wireshark sees that the packet exiting the pc as being sent to the right destination ip and port. When the packet gets to the colleges outside router, however, nat kicks in and alters the destination port (so when packet returns to the colleges outside router, the router will know where to send it internally). My router, in turn, drops the packet and no translation takes place. Will VPN solve this issue for me? What are some good free VPN solutions? Is there any other way around this?

can you share your NAT configuration that you've done on the router to check whether everything is in order? alternatively you could try Gotomypc by Citrix. This will enable you to access your pc regardless of where it is.
