    I have an all Mac house , but I have a Windows laptop for work. The way I do work on it at home is by connecting to it with the Mac version of the Windows RDC. When I had a Lynksys router this worked very well , but it stopped working , and I got me an Apple Airport Extreme base station , and now it doesn't find the windows Laptop. Pinging the windows laptop from any mac works. I have access to the internet from the laptop.

    Windows RDC for the Mac support told me to make sure
    "telnet < window System IP Address> 3389" works , I tried it and it doesn't.

    I tried to adding a NAT entry for the 3389 port for the windows laptop IP address to the windows , to the Airport Extreme. But no luck. Any suggestions?
