Remote Desktop Help

#1
Okay you networking gurus I need some help. I have a machine at home running Vista and one at work running Vista and would like to use remote desktop to my work machine so I can work from home when I need to. I am hoping I can use the setup in Vista without having to buy Gotomypc.

I can make the remote desktop work flawlessly in the office between two machines but I cannot access my office from home for some reason.

Anyone with experience at this HELP!

RD will require various special ports forwarded on your router (if you have one) and ports allowed in your firewall (Vista by default has a firewall, so even if you haven't installed one it is there) before you can do it.

Another solution would be to use VPN, see the VPN thread in this forum as well.
