My XP PC has a fixed IP address on the local network (wifi) at 192.168.2.2
In the router firewall configuration I have configured, if it receives data on port 3389, forward it to 192.168.2.2.
When on the EDGE network with the iPhone, I will in mocha Remote Desktop as Windows PC IP write
- 188.8.131.52 , and as port 3389 (Not the IP address for the Mac!)
With canyouseeme.org it is possible to check if the router has been configured to allow port 3389 access. At field What port type 3389, and click [Check]. In the center of the page the result is shown (below some google ads)
If you open the router for port 3389 access, make sure to use a proper user/password in the XP PC Server, or your system will be at high risk.

- - If the iPhone is not using wifi, but only the EDGE network, the IP address for the XP Server given in Mocha Remote Desktop must be your Home router IP address. The router must also be configured to forward port 3389 traffic to your PC. To open port 3389 could be a security risk. Check the router manual for advice.
