    You must have a password on the account you are using to Remote Desktop into your PC on.
    For security reasons, Windows will not allow an account without a password to connect remotely.. regardless of the settings. - it is impossible.

    so first put a passowrd on your account.

    Next, create a port forwarding rule on your router to tell it that any traffic on port 3389 needs to do to your Local PC. -- the exact steps varies from router to router but it shoudl look something like this
    RULE NAME
    192.168.0.100 TCP port:3389 FROM: ANY

    Check your routers Tech Support site, they usually have instructions on setting up Port Forwarding rules. -- One manufacturer (SMC) even had a how tutorial on it.

    Next find out your Public IP address -- this is the IP address that your Internet Provider has assigned you. try using http://whatismyip.com/
    from your home PC.

    From your PDA.. start up Terminal Services Client and type in \YOURIP:3389

    NOTE: Your Public IP changes occasionally, especially if your reboot your router. - so you might need to check your public IP once or twice a week to be safe.

    Optional: Use DynamicDNS from www.dnydns.org so that you don't have to worry about changing IPs -- DynDns will allow you to associate YOUR public IP with a domain name they own. Then you install a free program that auto-updates DynDNS whenever your public IP changes.
    To connect you simply tupe in your domain name instead of IP. example: instead of typing \69.250.32.132 you'd type: \mycomputer.homeip.net

    from your home PC.
    There is a similar ip search site called IP-Details.com to check our External ip address. Here it display IP address, ISP, Location, Country and so on,...
