Remote Desktop Web Connection with Windows XP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there,

    Thanks to this article http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/using/networking/expert/northrup_03may16.mspx I have managed to set-up the Remote Desktop Web Connection and forward the correct ports.

    The problem I have, is that on my IP, there are two computers, and I need to be able to connect to my laptop, which is set up for remote connection.

    My local ip address is
    The Home computer is

    To connect to the desktop, i have to put in the following command (with my ip) but how do i enter the network ip and my local ip? because if I am sat at work, i have to type in the ip address assigned to my internet connection at home and then I need to connect to my laptop local ip?

    If someone can help, it would much appreciated!
