    My home router is a Cisco 2600 running 12.2(34) firewall feature set.
    Accessing the internet with the running CBAC works. I can successfully
    VPN to my company network. My issue is when trying to remote desktop to
    a server and my office computer.

    - I know that I successfully established a TCP handshake with the
    server because I did a traffic capture and saw the SYN/SYN-ACK/ACK. The
    furthest I get is seeing the blue desktop screen on my Remote Desktop
    window and then the "network error" message. I don't even get to see
    the Windows Logon screen.
    - My ZoneAlarm log shows that it allowed the 3389 connection to the
    server. I even shutdown ZoneAlarm and tried again. No change.
    - I figure it's something to do with my home router config because I
    plugged my laptop directly to my cable modem and I'm able to VPN and
    remote desktop to my server and office computer.

    Just need some help/suggestions in finding out why it's not working.

    my partial router configuration:
    ip inspect max-incomplete high 1100
    ip inspect one-minute high 1100
    ip inspect name CBAC tcp
    ip inspect name CBAC udp
    ip audit notify log
    ip audit po max-events 100
    interface FastEthernet0/0
    description ---- connect to Internet ----
    ip address dhcp
    ip access-group CBAC in
    no ip proxy-arp
    ip nat outside
    ip inspect CBAC out
    duplex auto
    speed auto
    no cdp enable
    ip access-list extended CBAC
    permit udp any eq bootps any eq bootpc
    permit gre any any
    permit icmp any any echo-reply
    permit icmp any any traceroute
    deny ip any any log

    Check the MTU and MSS on which end of the link? My laptop, my router,
    the server, or all? Am I looking for the values to be the same? I'll
    check and respond back with the values.
