Remote Desktop Allow sign on but rejects password

Hello and be patient with me. This is my first.

Computer A running Windows 7 Professional.. Desktop to be connected to from Home
Computer B running Windows 7 Home and Office..Laptop wanting to connect to Computer A

I would like to say I have configured it correctly as I have done this in the past, but obviously not
or I would not be seeking help.

Anyway, The Remote Desktop on the laptop will allow me to connect with my password and BLANK password. I have that checked the registry to make sure the requires password is enbled. It allows me connect to a desktop remote screen but rejects both my password and the blank. This remote desktop does not reflect the user Picture Icon.

I have created the port forwarding to 3391 in my router. Went into registry on computer A and changed the port setting to reflect port 3391. I have tried the setup both as computer running any version and NAT Authentication.

You might have something

On computer B I set the RDF to attached file. Now that is a good question! Is there a registry setting I need to change on Computer B? I assumed I targeted the port within Remote Desktop Connection.
