Hello, I'm Tom and I am an advanced IT user...here is my situation. I have just upgraded to Windows 7 and configured remote desktop in the same way I have on XP and Vista machines, but I have come across an issue which I cannot find a solution to. I can remote desktop to my computer running W7 from any location, except from with the network at the college I am currently at. Port 3389 is blocked so I am using port forwarding in my router to get around this... My first diagnosis was that the other port I use had been blocked on the network... I have tried several different ports - some of which I know aren't blocked - and I still can't remote desktop to W7... Any suggestions on how to solve this would be greatly appreciated, as I am out of ideas...I have tried... Different ports Different firewall configurations Disabling the firewall ... All with no success... Thanks for your time!
