RDC Rejecting Right Away

Dell / DIMENSION 2400

Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Professional, 2.393 GHz / 765 MB
I recently re-formatted my XP Box at home. I installed everything that I normally use and enabled all RDC options that I used to use. Before, I could type my WAN IP and Name of the computer in the RDC box and it would let me connect to my PC at home from school. Since this format, I try and connect from school with all options enabled as were before. I click connect and about one second later (really quickly after I click connect) I get the "Cannot Connect... Remote Connection Might Not Be Enabled..." error message. Any ideas?

Firewall enabled on the home machine?

No firewall except the XP Pro one, which is configured to let RDC through.
