Windows Remote Desktop Connection cannot find my work computer, whether I enter the computer name or its IP address. It is able to find other servers though by name.

Can anyone provide any help?

Make sure that the PC is set up to log into the Domain when it boots up. Put in the user information and password when the computer boots up and prompts for a domain logon. It will return a message about being unable to find domain controller. Hit OK. This will cache the information for use after you've established your VPN connection. Log into your ISP and then connect with the VPN Client. Once connected, right click on Network Neighborhood and select "Find Computer". Put in the IP address of the Primary Domain Controller. Once it is found, double click on the blue computer icon that it's found. Since the PDC is also the Master Browser for the domain, connecting also prompts the remote PC to get the browse list from the PDC.
