    I use ConnectMe for Remote and Local PC access. I have a DynDNS account and port forwarding on my router for the RDP port required.

    If you have DDNS already setup, then I assume you have a web address associated with it. Basically, you log in to your router and configure 'port forwarding' for port 3389 to the IP address of the desktop you want to remote to. Once that's set, in the ConnectMe app you basically say your host is: YOUR.DDNSADDRESSHERE.WHATEVER:3389

    I kind of assumed this, but maybe I should ask...you do have Remote Desktop enabled on your machine correct? Are you using Windows Firewall?

    The best app for remote accessing your PC via WP8 is Teamviewer.
