    I tried to use Remote Desktop to connect to my Firewall protected PC from work, but even thought I enabled port 3389 for both incoming and outgoing (UDP), it didn't enable me to connect. I can connect fine from home to work using it, but not the opposite. I use Sygate Personal Firewall. I set up an advance rule saying to leave port 3389 (local) and 3389 (remote) opened for the UDP protocol. Anything else I missed?

    edit: also make sure that if you have XPs internet connection firewall enabled it's set to allow remote desktop throught.

    Thanks, I'll try that. But for the XP Firewall.. I don't think I'm stupid enough to leave it on when I have Sygate PF hehehe
