I have Windows XP Pro on my home computer and Windows Vista on my laptop. When I tested out the Remote Desktop connection from my laptop it worked fine. I was in the same room with both computers.
I was in another city and tried to connect and it wouldn't work. I searched for answers online but nothing helped! Could someone tell me what to do? Simple language please because I'm new to this!
Thanks in advance. :(

It won't work because when you leave your house, you are no longer connected to your network. It would be like trying to open your car trunk when you are sitting in a car 100 miles from yours.

Simplest way to get to your computer remotely is though a web service like You need to set this all up before you travel though.
