1) You can go to their support web site. Normally they will post changes to the system etc.
2) You can all them and ask for someone who knows about RDP.

you should remember that some (non business specific) services offered by ISPs' have a FUP (fair usage policy) which says that they do not support/allow business to be carried out on their provisioning. This can be extended to VPNs, hosting of websites and RDP....

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

Well I got it working, through the website and even through the Remote Desktop Connection on windows.

What I did was unplug the modem/router and plugged it back in. I opened a web page and it went to my ISP's "can't connect" page I guess for lack of a better term. There was an option there for remote access. It showed something like

HTTP 56004

4-5 more letters in caps here 55112

4-5 more letters in caps here 54428

Those were 3 random ports I guess.
I had to enter in a user name at the top and for these Applications I had to check at least 1, so I checked all 3 and clicked Enable... I logged into the server through the website they offer, and remote access worked as well.. So I guess something must have changed in the last 2 months through the ISP do disable these connections. :)
