I'm trying to set up my computer so I can remote access it from anywhere including outside the local network.
I have it working locally by following this tutorial but it was old in XP era. But now I'm using Windows 7.

- I download the DynDNS updater on my host computer so I can use the DNS rather than my IP address (I can ping my newly registered xxxx.selfip.com so I assuming I got that right)
I went to my router admin page setup the port forwarding table to 3389 with my private IP address like this:
All the remote desktop services are running and it works fine in my local network
But I when I try to connect I get the error:
