    That's ok, Microsoft got all this confused as well :)

    On a positive note, I haven't heard of too many instances where this RDP exploit has caused many problems. With only 443 bytes required to crash a system I was expecting a few thousand attempts from zombie PC's.

    It wasn't the time taken that was the issue. He was adamant that giving my home IP access to his server via RDP was a huge security risk rather than giving my work connection access.

    IF anything it is more secure as you're only giving me access rather than the 1000 computers sitting on my work network.
