You need to forward a port from your router to your desktop's ip.

For example, if your desktop's ip address is 192.168.1.101 then you need to forward a port of your choice (let's say 5678 as an example) to port 3389 on 196.168.1.101

so it'd be something like this, depending on your router's configuration

External Port IP Address Internal Port
5678 192.168.1.101 3389


Then when you want to connect from outside the network you point to your RDP client to [your public ip]:5678

Or just install TeamViewer :P

yeah teamviewer is easier, but I would like to use the built in remote desktop application. Can you give me the proper sets to do all this?
