    If you are connecting over the internet I would not suggest opening the smb/lanman ports for security reasons. As you already have 3389 open you could enable access to local drives on your home machine and copy data that way. (Assuming this has not been disabled on the work machine).

    When you RDP before you connect there is an [OPTIONS] button, and then click the "Local Resources" tab, click the [MORE] and you can take you local drives to the server.
    It tunnels through the normal 3389 port.

    Direct hosting of SMB over TCP/IP and Service overview and network port requirements for the Windows Server system have some details. I think you need all the ports in the first article, plus port 445 for SMB.
