Everything I read tells me that this is a plug and play. That makes me think that something is up with some other piece of software. I made sure the process was on this morning when I left home, but cannot connect. As far as I can tell, you do not need to setup port forwarding on your router, and I did not. The global part of the ini file(sorry not home to reference file name), tells me the port I need to use is 3389, so I even tried to connect to ip.address:3389, no luck.
I won't be able to try them until I get home tonight.
EDIT: the problem is not going to be rdp out of work site, as I have to connect to multiple client sites every day. I guess I am saying; "that door is open".
