    Make sure you test this over your local LAN from another PC first. If Firefox can download and use
    the ActiveX component then I suppose you could use Firefix. Otherwise you will need to use IE.

    Personally I don't do the web based method of RD, but that is personal preference...As always,
    YMMV...

    I didnt understand the last post to the question. Remote connection always
    connect over a lan . The most severe problems arise from router preventing
    access. As for the web bas remote service i was under the impression that you
    needed a web sever running microsoft additional software to allow this, which
    most isp( internet companies )do not offer...???

    Some ISPs do block TCP Port 80 which IIS uses... You can change IIS to use a
    different port, ie. TCP Port 8080 for example. You still need to forward TCP
    Port 8080 (if that is what you change IIS to) though...

    Look at this reply, from awhile back, to a similar problem by Bill Sanderson
    (MS-MVP) for help...

    ***************************


    Right-click My Computer.
    Manage,
    expand Services and Applications,
    expand Internet Information Service
    expand web sites
    right-click default web site, choose properties
    You'll spot the TCP Port (80) in the upper panel.


    You have to choose a substitute. 8080 is one choice made for proxy servers.
    One popular brand of routers uses this address for remote html admin, if you
    enable that feature--so 8081 may be a better choice if you might have such a
    hardware router in place.


    At any rate, pick a port--restart IIS.
