How can I connect using Remote Desktop from my home PC to a clients which is running XP pro and Zonealarm and has a temporary IP address. The client is using ADSL broadband from BT openworld.

I tried just putting in the IP address when using the Remote Desktop client from my home PC running windows 98SE but received the time out message.

The client needs to allow TCP traffic on port 3389 through his firewall.
