VPN & Remote Desktop Issues


Work have just bought me a new Mac Air which I want to use to connect via VPN and remote desktop to my work machine. I'm a software developer so I'm techie but I'm new to Mac's so please bare with me.

Anyway, I've downloaded the Microsoft remote desktop client for Mac and installed it. I've setup the VPN connection and test it and it says it's connected. However, when I try connecting to my work machine using the remote destop client and the IP address it says it can't connect.

At this point I'm a little stumped as I've already said I'm new to Mac's so I'm not really sure where to start looking. One thing though, I have an IPad 2 which I've setup the VPN on and I'm using the Mocha remote desktop client app to connect to my work machine so I'm reasonably confident it's not the VPN that's causing the issue but something to do with the Microsoft remote desktop client.

Any help would be appreciated.
