now for instance... if you have the 3389 blocked. You are going to have to manually change the port on each computer on a port that is open and of course use this:

192.168.2.1:89

if you changed the port to 89
I understand what you are saying, but according to the people that I spoke with on the Outpost Forum, what I did was only to block 3389 to the outside world, not internal access. Here is a link to the thread in question, maybe I misunderstood something:

Entering "remote" into the Start Menu's search window, I found a point in System Properties to enable RDP access, but when I tried to do so, it complained that without Windows Firewall being enabled, it couldn't enable RDP. I have it disabled, because I prefer using Outpost. Although I know that it had worked with both firewall enabled in the past, I didn't think it was a good idea to leave it that way, because that would actually make 3 firewalls when counting the one in my router. Is there a way to enable RDP without the firewall?

I'm under the impression that the only thing that I have blocked is external access via RDP. If you believe otherwise, please elaborate.
From what I've read in this forum and on outpost is that you're making mods to your windows firewall... Thus "outside" connections include your current network. I just double checked the default RDP rules and I don't see a way to exclude internal subnet but it may be possible.

The only mods that I have made are those to the Outpost firewall, not Windows Firewall. As I mentioned in a post just above, the Windows Firewall is disabled entirely. I'm totally new to the entire concept of networks and RDP, outside of what has been said in this thread, and the Outpost thread, thus my confusion is growing larger and larger, rather than clearing. What may seem like a clear statement to you, means nothing to me, such as the one about excluding an internal subnet. If you want me to understand, put it in plain english, without making any assumption about my prior understanding.
