Hi Rekha. You probably need to forward port 3389. Port 3389 is the port used by Microsoft Remote Desktop. Here's an article that explains ports and why we need to forward them: https://www.whatismyip.com/what-is-port-forwarding/

After reading the above article, you'll need to login to your router and find the forwarding section. Then set port 3389 to forward to the internal IP address of the PC you're trying to connect.

Our port scanner tool can help you determine if the port has been opened. https://www.whatismyip.com/port-scanner/
