I posted an a thread a while ago but got no responses. I am still having trouble logging into my work desktop (Windows OS) from my home laptop (Ubuntu 11.04) from my home network. I am able to establish a successful VPN connection to my network but unsuccessful in remoting to work using Reminna Remote Desktop client.

I have narrowed it down to my router (D-Link 624) or Ubuntu issue. I am able to VPN and RDP using another computer (Win 7 OS) on my same home network. I connected my laptop directly to my modem using an ethernet cable and was successful in establishing VPN connection and RDP to my work computer.

I keep finding port forwarding solutions, but I don't think that applies to my case. So what am I missing?

Thanks in advance for any tips or advice!
