      Hello,

      Type in 192.168.0.1 into your address bar when prompted for a password type in admin (username) and sky (password). Now on the left hand side click firewall rules. Now click on inbound services. Type in the port, "send to LAN users" is 192.168.0.2.

      And that will fix it then?

      Think my lan ip is 192.168.0.4

      If I am not mistaken there is a predefined rule for this.

      Log into your router, as above.

      Go to Firewall rules, select RDP (3389) in the drop down, allow always, send to LAN server - your PC's IP and then save

      See if that works.

      None with 3389 in brackets?

      If not you will have to make a rule - use TCP/UDP and then once made go back and do the same as my other post by selecting it.

      If you need any more help give me a shout and I will connect my V1 and give you a small tutorial.

      Delete the outbound ones. You don't need them.
