    My network card has an IP of, My Dlink DI-604
    router has an IP of The gateway and Dns
    point to the router I can get on to the
    internet with these settings. I am running XP PRO and my
    buddy is running XP HOME. I set up the VPN server on my
    end (XP PRO) and my buddy has the client (XP HOME).
    We both created host names for ourselves on
    We refresh our DNS and my buddy can connect to my system
    over the internet via VPN + remote desktop without the
    router. He can browse my drive and print to my printer.
    When my router is in place, my buddy can connect with VPN
    but can't connect with remote desktop. I've got the
    latest firmware update for the router and tried the ports
    that Dlink promotes on their support site. I have my
    buddy point to the WAN IP of the router when coming in
    with remote desktop. The virtual server points to my
    network card My buddy can connect with VPN
    through my router but can not connect with remote desktop.
    Any suggestions?

    I am setup using port 3389 and I still cannot access the pc behind th
    di-604. Using VNC I have no problem.

    check connectivity first. be sure you can ping both the router and the pc
    behind the router. make sure you set the remote desktop on the remote pc and
    set the right permission.

    Please be sure that the remote computer is using a different subnet. For example, if your host computer is on than the remote computer needs to be on a different network, such as
