Remote Access
by quincywalltech / June 14, 2007 1:35 AM PDT

After setting up your network, which is pretty straightforward, remote access is handeled by RDP or Microsofts Remote Desktop, The remote PC's must have xp pro or the office version of Vista.

Make sure you have the ports on the router open to the rdp ports 1645 (I think) forwarded to just one of your local pc's

Then get an account from
Install the updater app from on one of your PC's or configure your router with your
dyndns settings.

Change your DNS settings on your router to DNS servers

Then from any windows machine you can use RDP to get to your home network.

There are other Terminal service Clinet/Server apps but RDP is the fastest for windows.

From any WinPC you can rdp into your home by typing for ex:

Once logged in you can then re RDP to one of the local pcs by calling up RDP in the remote pc and typing in the name of one of the other two PC's ie //pc0002

This is a bit brief but should get you started.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
