I have a WinXP Pro at home and enabled for RD Web Connection - IIS components
installed and router configured. Remote Desktop works fine within the home
LAN from my laptop (Win2K) to the XP machine. It also works when I use a
dial-up connection from the laptop. But when I'm in the office and try to RD
connect, only the tsweb default.htm shows up on the laptop's IE browser.
Typing in the static IP of the router, I only see something like "The
computer you're connecting to is not receiving connection...." It's seems a
generatic RD error.

Can someone help? Could it be the corporate firewall blocking certain
ports, since a dial-up connection works? How to solve?

It's either your coporate firewall or your router at home. On your home
router you need to forward the needed ports to your desktop.
