Remote desktop with internal IP

by luxx / November 10, 2006 12:00 AM PST

I have set up the remote desktop on my work PC, I want to connect from home but it doesn't work. Apparently the problem is that the IP I'm trying to use is an internal one (192.168.x.x, from my work network), is there anyway that I can connect to my PC at work having only its internal IP address?

You will need to setup a VPN. You would have to work with your tech staff to set that up.

This sort of thing is a big security risk, and so your company IT staff probably don't want people just setting this sort of thing up as they please. State your case to the IT people in your company, and if they feel you have a good enough reason, they'll help you set it up.

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?
