Instead of using Remote Desktop for that look at using something like MS Portrait if you just want
to see what is going on at home...

http://www.research.microsoft.com/%7Ejiangli/portrait/

You can call direct IP-to-IP. If your behind a firewall/NAT/router then the following ports must be
opened...

TCP Port 8100 Portrait Listen
UDP Port 8110 Portrait Video
UDP Port 8120 Portrait Audio

I use portrait all the time to video conference with my brother...In my case I have a cheap Veo USB
webcam connected to one of my home XP PCs...
