I am trying to connect to my home PC from work using remote desktop. I put in my computer name, username, password, and IP (in the domain field) but I get an error every time. Any suggestions to get this to work?

I think BTB hit the nail on the head.

You are going to have to forward TCP Port 3389 to you PC.

And put the IP in the computer box, and nothing in the domain field.

That works for me, I use RD all the time, faster than PCA.
