Which I have already done I believe. I have noticed that regardless of
whether I forward the port to the machine in question, running a port
probe on port 3389 shows that it's closed (as long as Windows firewall
is off). Also, attempting to telnet (from outside the LAN) into the
computer on port 3389 results in a connection refused error. The result
doesn't change regardless of which Remote Desktop connection option I
choose under the Remote tab of the System Properties dialog.
