I got an app (RDP lite) which lets me use my pc remotely when I set the ip address to my pc's and use it at home. So it's fine internally but when I want to try it externally I try setting it to my routers ip address, provided by bt home hub manager and under 'home network' then 'ip addresses', and that doesn't work. I know I need to configure my router to allow incoming traffic to my default port for windows (XP), 3389, but I really don't know how. I've tried a few things like letting supported applications 'vnc' to device 'ibm...etc' and removing the firewall temporarily but I'm shooting in the dark here.
Please help, thanks for your time Jaff
