How do i setup remote desktop connection to connect to my computer at work?

Question by mattfox27: How do i setup remote desktop connection to connect to my computer at work?
I want to be able to connect to my computer at work which is behind a sonicwall tz180. I have an available ip address for it and i think i know how to do it but i wanted to make sure. So i just basically forward the ip through the firewall to the lan ip address for that computer right? How do i setup the computer to accept a remote desktop connection?

yes you need an external IP to get to it. ping it from a command line on the outside to be sure its there. To enable it on the PC go to Control Panel > System > Remote
