I am having an issue with Remote Desktop. Funny thing, it was working before. Here is a rundown of how it is setup. Sorry if it turns into a long post.

I have 4 pcs in the house that have remote desktop. I have changed the port to 7771, 7772, and 7775 on the other 3, the first is the default 3389. I have Verizon Fios, and have the port forwarding all set up. Everything worked until last week with no problems for over 9 months. One of the power guys cut my fiber line, and they had to lay new fiber. I got a new IP address, and had to change the forwarding rules in the router. All but the 7772 is working now.

I think it is blocked on the PC side. I know it is listening to 7772. I have the windows firewall totally disabled in the services. Is there any other way of checking to see if there is another firewall that got turned on? I see no other firewall at all. I have also tried to just add the pc to the DMZ to see if it is a routing issue, and that was still a no go as well.....

As I said, the only thing that is changed that I am aware of, is the IP. Any one have any ideas of what to check next?
