Port's for copying Using explorer
Does anybody know which ports i need to open so i can connect from my Home pc to my work pc through explorer e.g \\myipaddress\C$ as currently i only have the remote desktop port open (3389).

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).

I forgot to mention its via our LEA's VPN but i have an ISA which does NAT but only has the RDP port open atm.

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.
