I have Windows 7 Ultimate on my office PC. I am trying to connect into my office PC from home using remote desktop.

I have selected allow connection from computers running any version of Remote Desktop
I have selected allow remote assistance to this computer
I believe I enabled my Remote Desktop (TCP-In)(TCP 3389)in advance settings inbound rules
I am running BT Fusion (wireless router) and and have selected allow pinhole access through my fire wall.
I have tried using my IP address when logging and my username as an alternative.

I can connect using remote desk top when I am in the office (I assume it is through homegroup)

but when I'm at home I keep getting an error message:

Remote Desktop can't connect to the remote computer for one of these reasons:
1) Remote access to the server is not enabled
2) The remote computer is turned off
3) The remote computer is not available on the network

I'm assuming it is Firewall issue??

Anybody got any ideas?
