Windows 7 gobbles up my open ports!!

Hello enthusiasts,

I have a problem where any port I enable in the registry for Win7 RC Remote Desktop is useable for a few seconds until the Cryptography Service latches on to it!

It then becomes unuseable for remote desktop. This keeps happening no matter what I change the port to.

Has someone posted a step be step guide to accessing your home pc from the big bad world?

I have seen one on internal access but not external.

Please help as I am pulling my hair out!
