Remote desktop port forwarding
I am running Windows XP SP3 on my desktop machine (mic-desktop) inside
my home LAN.
I have remote desktop turned on and am able to use it properly from
another computer in my network.
What I'd like to do is be able to remote desktop mic-desktop from
outside the network.
I have configured my router to forward port 3389 to mic-desktop.

Any help is appreciated.
