can't a girl check her torrents from bed?

It's Grace, so it must be a smartphone question. This time - how do you get iPhone Remote Desktop to log into an XP Pro PC? Troubleshooting steps inside.

This is our, er, download box and it would be great to log in and check my torrents via our local wireless network. I've checked that it is XP pro; that sharing is turned on; other PCs can remote in and my Mac can get access to the storage. The PCs (both windows 7) can get into the XP box via port 3389 but my iPhone can't. What gives?
When I try to log in, I see the regular screen you would see going in, menu and keyboard controls etc, but instead of the desktop I see a black screen.
Oh and the resolution is set to normal iPhone landscape mode.
