    I've set up Remote Desktop Connection on the lone Windows XP
    Professional (SP2) computer in my office and can access the PC from all
    of my Mac OS X (10.4.8) computers through RDC when I'm in my office, on
    the LAN (gigabit ethernet). However, when I leave the office and
    establish a VPN connection to the OS X server in my office, I can't
    make a RDC connection to the PC. I can connect to my server through
    the VPN connection just fine, but not the PC. I have broadband service
    in my office and when I attempt to make the RDC connection remotely. I
    have a dynamic IP address through my ISP, but use the DynDNS service to
    get around this issue.

    I'm guessing that the problem may lie in the 'computer name' I'm
    specifying in the RDC window, but haven't figured out how to point to
    the PC over the WAN. Anyone have any success with this?
